Harvey Weinstein will have to wait a little longer to get his day in court.
The disgraced producer’s sexual assault trial has been delayed and will now start on June 3, according to Page Six. The original trial date was May 6.
The reason for the change has not been filed in court documents but Page Six reports Weinstein’s new legal team has a 10-week trial slated to begin this week in Brooklyn.
Earlier in January, Weinstein and his lead attorney, Ben Brafman, parted ways.
The two announced the split in a joint press release, saying, “Both parties have agreed to part ways amicably and Mr. Brafman has agreed to cooperate fully with new counsel for Mr. Weinstein so as to ensure an orderly transition.”
The statement concluded, “Mr. Weinstein praised Mr. Brafman for his legal work to date and Mr. Brafman reiterated his belief that Mr. Weinstein would be exonerated of the charges that have been filed against him and Brafman personally wished Mr. Weinstein the best of luck as he defends the case and the accusations that Mr. Weinstein has vehemently denied.”
