Actress Caitlin Dulany, a second woman in the lawsuit, alleges that she was assaulted by the film producer in 1996 at Cannes Film Festival. And actress Larissa Gomes claims that she was cornered in a hotel room in Toronto in 2000.

Harvey continues to deny all allegations of non-consensual sex, pleading “not guilty” to charges of rape and criminal sex acts. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
