The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has been developing this case for a long time, and has put a lot of resources into it. You’re looking at similar allegations of rape and assault there, though the sentencing exposure in L.A. is, as of now, less severe than it is in New York, because they aren’t advancing something similar to the New York case’s predatory-sexual-assault charge, which could result in a life sentence. That may change, however. Prosecutors in L.A. have asked sources of mine, whose alleged assaults did not take place in Los Angeles, if they’d testify—it’s unclear under what legal theory. And sources in the investigation have said that they’re actively seeking additional charging opportunities. One interesting thing is how the two cases might intersect—if Weinstein is convicted of a crime in New York that took place prior to the alleged crimes at issue in the Los Angeles case, that could be an opportunity for either enhanced sentencing or an additional charge, where the prosecutors in Los Angeles use a New York conviction as a predicate to establish a pattern of behavior. So it’s a serious case and will continue to develop for some time to come.Also, despite Ratner saying he wouldn't tell Weinstein about his conversation with Farrow, he reportedly called Weinstein soon after and told him anyways.Well, I think there’s a constituency of survivors and activists for whom the case carries profound meaning. It’s a test of a lot of systems that have failed a lot of people for a long time. My relationship with it is more reportorial. Any outcome will be revealing about these kinds of cases and our ability to hold powerful people to account in the criminal-justice system. And it’s only one piece of a larger puzzle involving multiple jurisdictions.Ronan, considering how many women have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein, describing their accusations of sexual harassment, abuse, and, rape, why is the case in New York as confined as it is?

Harvey Weinstein’s criminal-defense attorneys, Blair Berk and Ben Brafman, said in a statement, “Because of the pending civil litigation and related investigations, it is inappropriate to respond specifically to each of the unsupported and untruthful insinuations contained in this article. Suffice it to say, Mr. Weinstein strongly objects to any suggestion that his conduct at any time has ever been contrary to law. Be assured that we will respond in any appropriate legal forum, where necessary, and fully expect that Mr. Weinstein will prevail against any claim of legal wrongdoing.
