Harvey Weinstein wants trial moved from New York 'as it's a circus'

Disgraced movie mogul Weinstein, 67, is charged with raping a woman in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006

Harvery Weinstein's lawyers are trying to have the disgraced movie mogul's criminal trial moved from New York City - after claiming he will not get a fair hearing. Arthur Aidala has filed a motion with the state appellate court suggesting the trial be moved to upstate Albany County or Suffolk County on Long Island. Weinstein's lawyer has said that media coverage and the 'circus-like atmosphere' that surrounded his past court appearances in Manhattan is proof that the trial needs to be moved. Aidala has cited that Weinstein's name was mentioned online on the New York Post's gossip column Page Six more than 11,000 times.

The court papers also argued that Manhattan is the epicentre of the global #MeToo movement, which took off and gathered momentum after numerous women accused Weinstein of wrongdoing. Aidala continued: "It is difficult to conceive of a similar case in recent memory that has generated more inflammatory press coverage." Weinstein, 67, is charged with raping a woman in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006. He has pleaded not guilty and has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
