Harvey Weinstein reaches $25m civil court deal -


Shamed Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has reached a tentative $25million civil settlement with dozens of his alleged sexual misconduct victims

Following a two year legal fight, the proposed civil settlement has obtained preliminary approval from all the major parties involved

The claimants – which include more than 30 actresses and ex-Weinstein employees would share the payout, along with any other future accusers

As a result, the settlement would essentially bring an end to every civil suit filed against him and his former company, pending a court approval and final sign off

The $25million in reparations would be paid by various insurance companies representing the now-bankrupt Weinstein Company

Weinstein is still set to be tried in Manhattan next month on charges of sexual assault involving two women

Weinstein has repeatedly denied any non-consensual sexual activity
