Knicks owner James Dolan named in civil suit against Harvey Weinstein

The suit claims that Dolan and Lasry knew of Weinstein's "pattern and practice of predatory sexual conduct toward women" but covered it up for years due to their close relationship with the Hollywood producer, ESPN reported.

The lawsuit states that Lasry - along with other Weinstein associates - knew of the movie producer's "pattern and practice of predatory sexual conduct toward women" due to their relationship with him.

According to the ESPN report, a spokesperson for Lasry declined to comment on the suit. Lasry stepped down in the wake of the allegations.

The lawsuit's defendants include former and current board members, namely, Weinstein's brother, Bob Weinstein, and billionaire hedge fund manager Marc Lasry, who was also a major donor to Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential run.

Although the allegations won't necessarily have much impact on the handling of either National Basketball Association team, it certainly is disconcerting and something that will develop over the coming months.

"We just received the complaint and are now reviewing".

The suit was filed by six women who claim to have been sexually assaulted by Weinstein. "We can state that Mr. Dolan is confident that he acted appropriately in all matters relating to his time on the Weinstein board". The lawsuit is accusing Weinstein's board of directors of allegedly knowing about the movie mogul's "predatory behavior" but failing to intervene, Page Six reported.

A full list of Weinstein's sexual assault accusers over the last few decades, which was released in October, can be viewed here in an article by reporter Nardine Saad of the Los Angeles Times. In 2007, they were hit with $11.6 million in punitive damages after a Knicks executive sued over sexual harassment.
