Harvey Weinstein Shuffles Legal Team Ahead Of Sexual Assault Trial

Harvey Weinstein enters the courthouse on July 11, 2019 in New York City.

Disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein was in court on Thursday looking for approval to switch up his legal team again, a mere 60 days before he is set to stand trial in New York.

This is the second time the former movie producer has shuffled his defence team since being charged in 2018 for rape and sexual assault.

Judge James Burke allowed lawyer Jose Baez to bow out after claims that he and his client couldn’t get along.

According to The Associated Press, the lawyer was asked outside court if he was off the legal team. Baez responded, “Yup. I feel like I won the lottery. Just kidding.”

Baez is known for representing Casey Anthony, the woman who was dubbed “America’s most hated mom” after being accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, in 2008.

Baez wrote a letter to Burke in June detailing how Weinstein tarnished their relationship by communicating only through other lawyers and by failing to abide by a fee agreement.
