With its bankruptcy, the Weinstein Co. has tossed out the nondisclosure agreements that officials say its co-founder and former CEO Harvey Weinstein wielded as a weapon in his sexual predation, bringing with it the possibility of a whole new wave of victims coming forward.That's because the Weinstein Co. only has the power to end agreements made by the company, not Weinstein himself, meaning its effect will be primarily on current and former employees.Cris Armenta, a lawyer representing accusers in a proposed class-action lawsuit against the Weinstein Co., said she fears that because so many of the agreements are with Weinstein himself and still apply, the impact may not be major.Schneiderman's office sent out a tweet Tuesday urging victims and witnesses to contact his office, which is conducting a civil rights investigation of the Weinstein Co. and of Weinstein himself.Some 80 women, including prominent actresses, have accused Weinstein of misconduct ranging from rape to harassment.
