Hollywood manufacturer Harvey Weinstein is seeking to get the prison case against him thrown out of court.

On Friday, his lawyers filed a defence motion citing dozens of “heat” emails they say Mr Weinstein gained from one in all his accusers after an alleged rape.

His workforce argue prosecutors should have shared the proof with the Grand Jury that indicted him.

Mr Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to six charges concerning three different ladies.

The accuser in query has retained her anonymity.

Mr Weinstein’s attorneys say the case have to be dismissed in its pre-trial stage.

In their movement, they included “dozens of emails written by means of the nameless accuser, who despatched in depth heat, complimentary and solicitous messages to Mr Weinstein instantly following the now claimed event and over the next four-year length.

“Those communications irrefutably reflect the true nature of this consensual intimate friendship, which never at any time included a forcible rape.”

The Brand New York District Attorney’s Place Of Work has now not but commented.
