Harvey Weinstein leaves court following a hearing over allegations he violated bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor, Dec. 11, 2019 in New York.

Dozens of alleged victims who sued former movie producer Harvey Weinstein for sexual misconduct have tentatively settled their case.
