One of the louder voices regarding sexual harassment appears to have taken a striking blow.
Rose McGowan just had her lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein dismissed.
According to reports, McGowan failed to meet the deadline that had been set by the courts.
McGowan was among the first to have filed a complaint against Weinstein.
According to McGowan’s account, Weinstein had raped her in 1997.
Her story was one was told by several other women who had come forward to claim that Weinstein had sexually assaulted them.
Those allegations eventually led to a conviction of Weinstein in 2020.
Over and above those allegations, McGowan was trying to have Weinstein charged on the RICO Act.
Those charges came about regarding actions taken by Weinstein as well as his then-attorneys.
That case will not be going forward because McGowan missed the court-imposed deadline to provide documented proof to support the case.
In the dismissal, the Court stated, “As of today’s date, Plaintiff has not filed any brief in response to the Court’s Order and Minute Order.
“Accordingly, Plaintiff is deemed to have conceded the two points the Court gave her opportunity to argue in the supplemental brief.
“Accordingly, the Court concludes that Plaintiff is unable to sufficiently plead a RICO claim, meaning that further amendment would be futile.”
McGowan has not yet answered any media inquiries regarding this case being dismissed.
