With the growth of the "sharing economy," businesses are having to deal with a number of new questions. When taking quick trips on the company dime, should employees hail a taxi or grab a Lyft? When traveling for business, can they book with Airbnb or should they stick with traditional hotels?
The Weinstein Co., which was co-founded by Harvey Weinstein, has filed for bankruptcy in Wilmington, Delaware. Dozens of women, at the least, may wish to sue the company for its alleged role in concealing sexual misconduct complaints against Harvey Weinstein. Filing for bankruptcy generally halts lawsuits against the bankrupt individual or company, putting them off until the proceedings are complete. In this case, however, the bankruptcy judge has ruled that the company will not be immune from litigation.
