Six women have filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, seeking to represent a class of ‘dozens, if not hundreds’ of women who say they were assaulted by the movie mogul.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday at a federal court in New York. It claims that his actions to cover up the assaults amounted to civil racketeering. Racketeering is a crime most commonly used in criminal cases involving crime organizations like the mafia.

The lawsuit claims that a coalition of companies and people became part of the growing ‘Weinstein Sexual Enterprise’ and that they worked with Weinstein to conceal his widespread sexual harassment and assaults. Among those listed as a defendant is Knicks owner James Dolan, a former director of the Weinstein Co.

The Weinstein Sexual Enterprise had many participants, grew over time as the obfuscation of Weinstein’s conduct became more difficult to conceal,’ the suit said.

Plaintiffs included the scriptwriter and actress Louisette Geiss and the actresses Katherine Kendall, Zoe Brock, Sarah Ann Thomas (aka Sarah Ann Masse), Melissa Sagemiller and Nanette Klatt. However, it is open to anyone else who was a Weinstein victim to join.

The Associated Press generally doesn’t name alleged victims of sexual assault without their permission. All of the women have told their stories publicly.
