Lawsuits for Sexual Abuse in the Entertainment Industry

Nationwide Representation for Victims of Sexual Assault & Abuse in the Film, TV & Music Industries

It is well known that sexual harassment and misconduct is prevalent in the entertainment industry. Sexual assault has impacted many individuals, including actors, actresses, models, performers, musicians, and employees who work for them.

Sexual assault is not limited to rape. Any inappropriate touching or hugging, using threatening language to compel victims to perform sexual acts, the unauthorized use of another’s body, or forcible intoxication to compel sexual activity is considered sexual assault.

Unfortunately, many incidents of sexual assault are never reported.

In the entertainment industry, victims of assault are often worried that reporting such activity will have an adverse effect on their employment prospects. Victims may be forced into sexual acts in return for promises of recognition and opportunity. Victims may also be reluctant to report abuse due to the fear that others will not believe their version of events.

If you have been sexually assaulted or abused by someone in the entertainment industry, Levy Konigsberg can help you seek justice. Call (800) 315-3806 or contact us online to learn more about your rights in a free consultation. We handle cases nationwide.

Prominent Cases of Sexual Abuse in Hollywood

Harvey Weinstein

When the New York Times and the New Yorker reported that dozens of women accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse over a 30-year period, a wave of litigation against powerful and wealthy Hollywood insiders revealed the extent of misconduct within the industry.

Since the initial allegations, more than 80 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment.

For Hollywood celebrities, that was just the beginning—hundreds of victims have come forward in the months following revelations of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct and accused other entertainers, actors, and celebrities of sexual abuse.

Detail (Noel Fisher)

Another noteworthy case involves the famous music producer Detail, whose real name is Noel Fisher.

In 2020, Detail was arrested in California for 15 sexual assault charges and 5 additional felony assault charges involving incidents that allegedly occurred between 2010 and 2018.

Several prominent female artists such as Bebe Rexha and Tinashe are among Detail’s accusers, and one woman alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Detail in front of other people, sometimes for hours at a time. Detail has been sued for his sexual misconduct before, and even refused to respond to one lawsuit, which forced it to end in a default judgment against him.

Extended Deadlines for Victims of Abuse in NY

In New York, the newly passed Adult Survivors Act (ASA) is giving people in the entertainment industry of NYC a chance to speak up and demand justice through civil action. Under the ASA, adult survivors of sexual abuse can file a lawsuit against their abusers, no matter when the abuse allegedly occurred. As long as they were adults when the sexual abuse occurred, the case should be legitimate due to the New York Survivors Act.

However, the window to file an ASA claim ends on November 24, 2023, so action must be taken soon.

Let Us Help You Take Action Against Your Abuser

Allegations of sexual abuse in the entertainment industry are often kept secret through duress and intimidation by individuals and corporations with extensive resources. It can be extraordinarily difficult to publicly disclose wrongdoing by powerful and well-known entities. However, sexual assault in the entertainment industry is a crime like any other sexual misconduct and should be redressed through criminal and civil penalties.

Famous and wealthy celebrities should not be protected from the consequences of their illegal behavior.

Due to changes in the laws in most states, victims of sexual assault in the entertainment industry can file claims against their abusers even when the abuse occurred many years ago. The “look back” window differs in each state so it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to understand your right to file a civil claim for compensation for your emotional and physical injuries.
