Harvey Weinstein's revolving door of attorneys share a similar defense strategy
14 July, 2019, 01:52 | Author: Cecil Buchanan
Former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein got approval from a NY judge to hire a new legal team two months before his scheduled rape trial.
"Mr. Weinstein has engaged in behavior that makes representation unreasonably hard to carry out effectively and has insisted upon taking actions with which I have fundamental disagreements", Baez wrote in a letter to the court.
In her own post-hearing press conference, Gloria Allred, who represents two of Weinstein's accusers in their civil cases, scoffed at Rotunno using her gender as a leg up.
The Wall Street Journalreported that Rotunno, a former Chicago prosecutor who specializes in the defense of men accused of sex crimes, said in an interview that she rejected the #MeToo movement.
She has espoused a philosophy that the movement is overblown and that women are "responsible for the choices they make". Now Jose Baez, known for representing high-profile clients such as Casey Anthony, is out after saying he and Weinstein just can't get along.
Weinstein engaged in behaviour that made representing him "unreasonably hard to carry out effectively" and insisted on taking actions "with which I have fundamental disagreements", Baez wrote.
The two lawyers reportedly made a decision to part ways with Weinstein after facing pressure from the public and not getting along with their client.
But she added: "When will Mr. Weinstein be held responsible for his?"
"I chose to represent Harvey Weinstein because I think these are the types of cases that lawyers that do what I do live for", Rotunno said outside the courthouse after the hearing.
The two accusers in the criminal case are among some 70 women, mostly young actresses and women in the film industry, who have accused Weinstein of sexual assaults dating back decades. The judge asked Weinstein if that was OK with him. As most know, Rose is just one of many women to accuse Harvey of sexual misconduct but she's not involved in the case that goes to trial on the 9th of September, this year. "I was honored to take on the case".

The swap comes after another Weinstein lawyer, Harvard law professor Ronald Sullivan, left in May amid backlash about his involvement.
The once prolific movie mogul pleaded not guilty to five counts of rape and sexual assault involving two different women, Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and an unidentified woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013.
His current team also includes Damon Cheronis and Arthur Aidala, a New York City lawyer whose clients have included rapper 50 Cent, the late Fox News chief, Roger Ailes.
Asked outside court if he was off the case, Baez responded, "Yup".
