Oct 3, 2019  •  Post A Comment

Fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein lost a round in court Thursday, according to media reports, when his bid to have his sexual assault trial moved out of Manhattan was denied by an appellate court.

“Weinstein had hoped to dodge the “circus-like atmosphere” of being tried in Manhattan Supreme Court, his lawyers previously said,” The New York Post’s Page Six reports. “Weinstein is accused of forcibly performing oral sex on production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and raping a longtime lover in a Manhattan hotel in 2013.”
