Tom Hays Associated Press Published 10:58 AM EDT Aug 26, 2019 New York — Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty to a new indictment Monday that includes revised charges of predatory sexual assault, a development that caused the judge to delay the start of his trial until early next year. The tweak to the case was intended to open the door for an actress to testify against Weinstein in a rape and sexual assault trial that had been scheduled to start on Sept. 9. Weinstein was in and out of a Manhattan courthouse quickly to enter the plea. He didn’t speak with reporters. After the hearing, his lawyers said they would ask the judge to dismiss the indictment, which they called a “desperate” attempt to salvage the case. “I think the case itself is weak,” said his lawyer Donna Rotunno.

Is the difference between a good plaintiff lawyer and a bad one the ability to commit extortion and get away with it? On Monday, Michael Avenatti showed the world what it means to fail miserably at his job. After tweeting his intention to hold a press conference "to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike," he was promptly arrested and charged with threatening to terrorize the shoe company with harmful revelations unless he was paid $20 million. Most observers have viewed this prosecution through the prism of both the sports world as well as a controversial figure potentially getting his comeuppance. But what if Avenatti had been more subtle? What if, instead of foreshadowing allegations against Nike in a tweet seen by millions, he had opened talks with Nike but otherwise remained tight-lipped until actually going to court? And what if he never demanded that Nike pay him a handsome retainer fee to be in charge of an investigation? He … [Read more...] about Is Michael Avenatti Any Worse Than Many Hollywood Lawyers?
