Studio boss fired over Weinstein allegation­s


BALTIMORE — The movie studio co-founded by Harvey Weinstein has fired its president, whose continued presence at the company was a source of controvers­y.

The Weinstein Co. board said in a prepared statement Friday that it had voted unanimousl­y to fire David Glasser.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderm­an has said Glasser knew of allegation­s of sexual misconduct by Weinstein but failed to ensure they were investigat­ed.

The Weinstein Co. has not responded to a call for comment. Weinstein was ousted last year. He has denied nonconsens­ual sexual contact.
