Disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein may be in a New York prison, but he faces a new legal fight in a London employment tribunal.

A woman in the U.K., who can’t be identified, said Weinstein assaulted and harassed her, and that seven other executives at his firm and its British unit “knowingly helped” him. The former employee is bringing an employment case while Weinstein is serving a 23-year sentence for sexual assault.
