Harvey Weinstein's attorney cleared for trial after conflict-of-interest allegations

Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are among more than two dozen actresses who say they were sexually harassed by the producer.

Weinstein entered a Manhattan court shortly before 10 a.m.to enter his plea; he was wearing a dark suit and was walking with a slight limp. Ryan Murphy has announced a TV series about the #MeToo movement that resulted in the downfall of Weinstein, tentatively called Consent, and David Mamet has written a play about Weinstein called Bitter Wheat.

Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, had previously said he thinks prosecutors have "unfairly denied access to critical information about this case".

Police set up a sting in which the woman recorded herself confronting Weinstein and him apologizing for his conduct.

The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults unless they come forward publicly. The other accuser, Lucia Evans a former actor, has gone public with her account of Weinstein forcing her to perform oral sex at his office in 2004.

Mr Weinstein left without speaking to reporters.

In a Manhattan federal lawsuit filed Friday, Weinstein rape accuser Melissa Thompson said she'd turned over key evidence to Brafman's former associate Alex Spiro - before learning his firm Brafman & Associates was representing Weinstein.

Harvey Weinstein is scheduled to be arraigned in NY on rape and criminal sex act charges.

The outpouring saw people around the world come forward with cases of sexual mistreatment, leading to resignations and sackings of powerful men across industries.

On May 25, the day of Weinstein's arrest and release on $1 million bail, Brafman seemed to concede that his client had engaged in bad behavior, even if it did not constitute criminal acts.

Harvey Weinstein arrives at State Supreme Court with attorney Benjamin Brafman.

Has said it was predictable that Weinstein's camp would attack the integrity of the women and of the legal system. "Mr. Weinstein is presumed to be innocent", he said.

Following public revelations past year about his predatory behaviour, Thompson said she was referred to Brafman and another attorney at his firm, Alex Spiro. She told her story in October to the magazine The New Yorker.
