The news surrounding Hollywood's sexual harassment scandal isn't letting up. From a possible Harvey Weinstein arrest to more repercussions for other Hollywood men accused of misconduct, Vanity Fair's Rebecca Keegan has the latest on the fallout.

The biggest development? A case in New York that could lead to Weinstein's arrest. Keegan broke the story late last week:

"Last week, the actress Paz de La Huerta became the latest woman to tell a story about Harvey Weinstein. She's also spoken to the NYPD about the allegations. She described to me to alleged rapes in 2010 in New York...Weinstein of course through his spokeswoman has denied any allegations of nonconsensual encounters since this scandal has broken."

So, why is this case different from the other allegations?

"She alleges a forceful rape...This one would lead to the harshest charge. It's also the timing of her allegations. She says this happened in 2010, according to the NYPD detective I spoke with, it has to be after June 2006 for the DA to be able to prosecute rape in the first degree."

The case in New York is just one of three ongoing investigations against Weinstein. The other two are taking place in London and in Los Angeles.
