Prosecutors in Harvey Weinstein’s New York case cry foul over defense lawyer’s comments

Associated Press

Prosecutors in New York have accused Harvey Weinstein’s lead defense lawyer of making public statements intended to intimidate a potential witness ahead of the fallen movie mogul’s retrial and have asked a judge to take action. New York’s highest court last month threw out Weinstein’s 2020 rape conviction. The Manhattan district attorney’s office sent a letter to the trial judge Thursday criticizing comments made by Weinstein’s lawyer outside of court on May 1. They want a judge to remind lawyers not to disparage potential witnesses.
