Deanna Paul Discusses Overturn of Harvey Weinstein Rape Conviction

BBC World News

WMH lawyer Deanna Paul discusses the New York Court of Appeals decision in Harvey Weinstein’s Manhattan sex crime prosecution.

The state’s highest court ordered a new trial Thursday, concluding that the trial judge improperly admitted prior bad act testimony from three accusers and, had Weinstein taken the stand, would have permitted cross examination on a range of conduct with little probative value. Both rulings, the court said, deprived Weinstein of his right to a fair trial.
