However, the prosecutors accused the former movie mogul’s lawyers of jury tampering, vociferously objecting to a Newsweek op-ed. The article, penned by Weinstein’s lead attorney Donna Rotunno, implored the jury to “look past the headlines” and “to base their verdict solely on the facts, testimony, and evidence presented to them in the courtroom.”
Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi objected to the piece, saying it violated judicial behavior and was written at the behest of Weinstein. “If this is conduct that is allowed to persist in the courtroom, we are all lost,” she said. Justice James Burke took no immediate action other than to remind attorneys not to speak to the press.
Weinstein—who is being charged with five sex crimes, including allegations of sexual assault and rape—will begin his official trial on September 9.
