Harvey Weinstein is already fighting a New York trial saying he doesn’t believe he can get a free trial in the city. Weinstein is preparing for what may become the trial of the century with a new legal team and apparent new strategy. He’s seeking a change of venue but at this point, it’s too early to know if he’ll get it. Weinstein is seeking a change to outside New York County. Casey Anthony attorney Jose Baez withdrew from Weinstein’s case after stating that Weinstein has engaged in behaviors that make Baez’s ability to represent him “unreasonably difficult.”
Weinstein currently faces multiple rape charges including first and third-degree rape, predatory sexual assault and criminal sexual act in the first degree. Multiple celebrity women have come forward to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior including Rosanna Arquette, Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino, Rose McGowan, Natasha Henstridge, Lauren Holly, Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and more.
