Weinstein seeks dismissal of case

 

Fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sought the dismissal of the allegations of sexual abuse against him based on emails that were sent by one of the alleged victims.

According to Harvey’s lawyers, the emails show that the producer and the alleged victim maintained a consensual relationship and that their friendship continued for at least four years after the alleged violation in 2013.

So far, the Hollywood producer has pleaded not guilty to six charges against him.

To date, the identity of the accuser remains anonymous to the media.

From the emails of the accusers, it proves that the two had a warm relationship in their four years of long-term relationship. In one of her emails, she writes, ‘I love you, always do. But I hate feeling like a booty call.’  She wrote this on February 2017 when she could not make it to a hotel to meet with Harvey because she had ‘schedule conflict’.

The New York District Attorney`s Office is yet to comment on this consensual intimate friendship between the two persons.
