Weinstein Board Terminates Co-founder Harvey Weinstein

Film producer Weinstein Co.'s board terminated co-founder Harvey Weinstein, who stepped away from the company last week after allegations of sexual harassment became public.

Weinstein had stepped away after the New York Times said he had reached settlements with at least eight women claiming to have been harassed by him. Among those agreeing to settlements were at least three employees and an unidentified actress, the Times said.

Weinstein has denied many of the allegations and said the Times story was unfair to him.
