Bosses at Steadfast Insurance Company are asking a judge to rule they are not responsible for covering the disgraced movie producer's legal fees after he recently turned himself in to police in New York.

AceShowbiz - Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is reportedly facing a lawsuit from bosses at his insurance company over his criminal trial.

The movie mogul is currently facing multiple charges of sexual assault amid an ongoing scandal linked to the film boss' bad behaviour.

Weinstein has been accused of bullying, harassment, misconduct, and rape by over 90 women, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Asia Argento, Rose McGowan, and Salma Hayek, since some of his questionable actions were detailed in exposes published in October (17).

And now, according to The Blast, bosses at Steadfast Insurance Company are asking a judge to rule they are not responsible for covering his legal fees or the $1 million (£757,100) bail he paid after recently turning himself in to police in New York.

"Steadfast seeks a declaration, that the criminal proceeding is not within the scope of coverage afforded by and does not trigger the insuring agreements of the insurance policy issued by Steadfast under which Weinstein seeks coverage," the request reads.

Weinstein is reportedly seeking to recoup the bail money, but the insurance executives are "declining coverage for the bail paid by Weinstein" and they are advising Weinstein that the cash bail he paid is "not within the definition of Defense Costs or Loss under the Steadfast Policy".
