As for Gomes, the second time Weinstein met with her, he "imprisoned her in his hotel room and threatened, battered and assaulted her", the law firm said. When she returned, the producer was naked from the waist down and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him, the suit alleges.

Weinstein became curt and when she continued with her business presentation, he ran his hands over her back, caressed her leg and moved his hand under her dress, according to the lawsuit.

Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually abusive behavior and rape by dozens of women, turned himself in to the New York Police Department on rape and other charges on May 25. Once there, he brought her to his hotel room, where the alleged rape occurred.

The lawsuit was filed one week after he was arrested on rape and criminal sex act charges stemming from accounts by other women.

The complaint also details how she initially approached the law firm of Benjamin Brafman past year, and turned over evidence, before realizing that Weinstein was actually a client of Brafman's. Dulany earlier told a version of her encounter in a first-person account for the Wrap, though she did not mention the alleged assault.

The action says the plaintiffs and "hundreds of other females" found themselves with Weinstein in such places, where he "isolated" them "in an attempt to engage in unwanted sexual conduct that took many forms: flashing, groping, fondling, harassing, battering, false imprisonment, sexual assault, attempted rape and/or completed rape".

"Deceptive tactics were used to entice her to turn over her visual and audio evidence of Weinstein's conduct (which she did)", it said.

The suit comes after Weinstein entered a not guilty plea following a NY grand jury's indictment on Thursday that included two counts of rape and one criminal sexual act.

"You know Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Judd were exactly where you are at one point", Gomes quotes him as saying. "Ashley Judd had no problem f***ing me".

The 66-year-old Weinstein was charged with rape and a sex crime in NY last week, almost eight months after his career imploded in a blaze of accusations of misconduct.

"Melissa did not learn that Brafman was actually then or would later be Weinstein's lead criminal defence attorney until after turning over the video as evidence".
