According to reports, an unidentified woman is seeking compensation from the filmmaker and The Weinstein Co. (for liability) stemming from an alleged sexual assault that happened in 2000. The lawsuit says the victim is entitled to damages for "personal injury, expenses, and consequential loss." She's asking for at least £300,000 (or $400,000).

Jill Greenfield, the attorney for the plaintiff, said her client used to work in the entertainment industry and had to act quickly since the incident happened so many years ago.

We'll keep you posted as the case progresses.
