Weinstein Company Fires David Glasser, Its President

Sunday 05:10 GMT

The Weinstein Company’s board of directors announced Friday night that they had unanimously voted to fire the company’s president and chief operating officer, David Glasser, for cause.

Who led the effort to retain Mr. Glasser — attributed Mr. Glasser’s change of heart in part to a personal friendship between Mr. Glasser and the brothers. Mr. Glasser, who had said he would depart as president of the Weinstein Company in August 2015, announced a month later that he would instead remain under a new three-year contract.
