SAN DIEGO (AP) — A lawyer who represented actress Paz de la Huerta has filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein and a former New York prosecutor, alleging they coordinated in a scheme to get the actress to drop her sexual misconduct complaint against the movie mogul.

Aaron Filler’s firm, Tensor Law, filed the lawsuit Friday against Weinstein, his company and attorney Michael Rubin.

Filler says in the lawsuit that Rubin persuaded de la Huerta to drop Filler as her attorney, and also encouraged her to drop the complaint alleging Weinstein raped her.
