Lawyers for the former movie titan-turned-#MeToo villain Harvey Weinstein filed notice Friday, Aug. 3, they'll seek dismissal of the case. Among other arguments, they say the grand jury that indicted Weinstein should have been told about emails from one of his three accusers: a woman who said he raped her in 2013.
