Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - NATION -

A prom­i­nent at­tor­ney said Satur­day she is no longer rep­re­sent­ing movie mogul Har­vey We­in­stein as he con­fronts sex­ual ha­rass­ment al­le­ga­tions dat­ing back years, while a TV news an­chor lodged an­other claim of mis­con­duct against the movie mogul and a third board mem­ber re­signed from We­in­stein’s com­pany.

The de­vel­op­ments, with the de­par­ture of yet an­other lawyer for We­in­stein, are the lat­est fall­out from al­le­ga­tions against the Os­car-win­ning pro­ducer that The New York Times de­tailed in an ex­pose Thurs­day.
