The company also announced it was releasing any victims of or witnesses to Weinstein's alleged misconduct from nondisclosure agreements preventing them from speaking out. The NYPD set up the sting after Gutierrez told authorities that Weinstein groped her the day before.
Weinstein, 66, has insisted that all sexual relations he had were consensual.
New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman had been pushing for this outcome for several months.
"We are confident that any review will confirm that our office has pursued its investigation without fear or favor, based on the merits alone", Frost, the spokesman for the DA's office, said in a statement.

The company has been reeling since late a year ago due to serial sexual misconduct allegations against ousted co-chairman Harvey Weinstein.

An initiative started by Hollywood industry women is calling for New York's governor to investigate the Manhattan district attorney's office over a decision in 2015 not to prosecute a sex abuse case against HarveyWeinstein. This next step is troubling for some, as Vance is the same D.A. who declined to file charges against Weinstein in 2015, after model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez alleged to the N.Y.P.D. that Weinstein had groped her.
New York's governor on Monday directed the state's attorney general to review the 2015 decision by the Manhattan district attorney's office to not prosecute a sex abuse case against Harvey Weinstein. The bankruptcy shows how hard it can be for companies to sever themselves from key figures - an issue even trickier for entertainment companies, where "talent" is seen as a highly specialized asset. After the DA's office was notified of the complaint, Gutierrez was rebuked in the tabloids, and Osgood hid the victim in for five nights in various Manhattan hotels, shielding her from invasive questioning by Vance's colleagues. Clips from the tape were later included in Ronan Farrow's explosive New Yorker report, published in October 2017.
Time's Up called for the probe following a NY magazine exposé that accused Vance's office - which had close ties to Weinstein's legal team - of attempting to aggressively poke holes in Battilana's story before ultimately dropping the case, even though the NYPD had the pervy producer on tape openly admitting to the groping.
