An unnamed actress has reportedly sued Harvey Weinstein for allegedly raping her in 2016.

Weinstein's rep tells us he denies any allegations of non-consensual sex.

Later, he telephoned her but she swore at him and hung up the phone and she was never given the role despite being told she was a "perfect addition" to the show, it is alleged by the accuser's lawyer Gloria Allred.

If that were to happen, it would be a profoundly troubling moment for the rule of law in the United States. The former is always going to be necessary but awkward; the latter is the stuff of banana republics.

According to the court documents, the two "maintained regular communication ... every few months thereafter". Harvey allegedly grabbed her wrists and masturbated. The documents do not specify where the incident took place within the hotel.

The suit, obtained Variety, stated Weinstein arranged a meeting with the actress at the Montage Hotel in 2015 to discuss a role on the Netflix series Marco Polo.

More than 50 women have claimed that Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them over the past three decades and Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The actress says she told Weinstein that "she did not want to do anything sexual with him".

In 2005, he sold his shares in Computer Futures for £17million and bought a villa in Ibiza and called it "La Maison de Bang Bang". Challenged by the taxi driver on his access to violence against his fourth wife, he would then be shown aggressive towards her.

This time she says he excused himself and came back in nothing but a robe before holding her down and forcing cunnilingus on her.

She then said that he used his "massive weight and strength" to penetrate her without a condom. The actress "finally broke free from his grasp and immediately left the bedroom and suite". The following spring, Doe says she met with him again under the impression she had been chosen for a part. Additionally, Asia Argento, Lucia Evans, and a woman who refused to speak on-record-have also accused Weinstein of rape, according to the New Yorker.

The woman, who says she never got the role on Marco Polo, is also suing The Weinstein Company, claiming the company was aware of that the producer had a pattern of using potential job opportunities to lure actresses into sex, and using violence to get his way.

The legal landscape of suing firearms manufacturers has been mixed, with some lawsuits failing and others succeeding. Several parents of children who died in the Newtown shooting attended Tuesday's court hearing.

A spokesperson for Weinstein denied any allegation of non-consensual sexual encounters, as he has with the dozens of women who in recent weeks have brought their own allegations of sexual harassment and assault against the now disgraced Oscar-winning producer. Due to the outpouring of cases against him, the New York Police Department, the LAPD, the BHPD, and London's Metropolitan Police Service and Scotland have all conducted investigations to deal with the charges.
