Weinstein, 66, has steadfastly insisted that he never engaged in non-consensual sex.
Brafman had already asked in August that the entire case against Weinstein be thrown out, disclosing dozens of intimate emails between his client and his alleged rape victim, in which she said “I love you.”Weinstein has been accused of misconduct by dozens of women, allegations that torpedoed his career and galvanized the #MeToo movement.
