Genie Harrison to Represent Sandeep Rehal on Weinstein Company Bankruptcy Committee
Committee For Unsecured Weinstein Co. Creditors Includes Two Of Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Plus WME
March 28, 2018 — By Date Hayes for Deadline Hollywood
The Weinstein Company Bankruptcy Committee will include Genie Harrison representing former Harvey Weinstein assistant Sandeep Rehal
Unsecured creditors trying to extract compensation from the Weinstein Company will be represented by a five-member committee that includes two of Harvey Weinstein’s accusers and major talent agency WME.
According to a one-page document filed today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, the committee includes Louisette Geiss and Sandeep Rehal as well as WME, Cinedigm and China-based Light Chaser Animation. The document, signed by the trustees in the bankruptcy case, doesn’t offer any specifics about what the quintet will be charged with doing. Essentially, they are the elite guard fighting for the thousands of unsecured creditors collectively owed more than $500 million by the company.
Geiss has been part of a class-action lawsuit filed under the federal RICO Act and also alleged that Weinstein sexually harassed her at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008. Rehal, Weinstein’s former assistant, is pursuing her own separate sexual-harassment suit in New York.
