 Judge agrees Weinstein payout to victims

NEW YORK, 26 Jan. - (ANA) - A US judge has agreed a $17 million (£12.4m) payout to women who accused disgraced film director Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. 
The payout for his victims will come from the liquidation of the Weinstein Co., which filed for bankruptcy in 2018. 
Weinsten, 68, was convicted last year and jailed for 23 years for rape and sexual assault. 
The settlement was put to a vote of Weinstein’s accusers, with 39 voting in favour of the payout and eight opposing.   - (ANA) -
