The New York State Attorney General filed a lawsuit against against Harvey Weinstein following an investigation revealing repeated examples of sexual misconduct, officials said Sunday.

Schneiderman believes a sale "would leave victims without adequate redress, including a lack of a sufficient victims compensation fund" and could allow "the perpetrators or enablers of the misconduct to see a windfall", according to the release.

Schneiderman's lawsuit alleges numerous instances of alleged harassment by Weinstein, including claims that multiple groups of Weinstein Company employees were responsible for facilitating Harvey's sexual encounters.

The lawsuit presents an obstacle for ex-Obama administration official Maria Contreras-Sweet's bid for the company. Weinstein was sacked by the company on October 8 following an expose detailing allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

The suit charges that the human resources department at the Weinstein Company was completely corrupt.

NY prosecutors also allege that, at Weinstein's direction, the company employed one group of female employees whose primary job it was to accompany Weinstein to events and to facilitate sexual conquests.
