Attorney says Weinstein will be "exonerated"

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) New York judge on Thursday (December 20) declined to drop charges against Film producer Harvey Weinstein in his sexual assault case.

Weinstein's attorney Benjamin Brafman said he was disappointed with the decision but, "despite the court's ruling today - that ultimately at a trial of this case, Mr. Weinstein will be completely exonerated." The producer has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone following accusations by more than 70 women, mostly young actresses and other women employed in the movie business, of sexual misconduct, including rape, dating back decades.

The accusations led to the #MeToo movement in which hundreds of women publicly accuse powerful men in business, politics and entertainment of sexual harassment and abuse.

Actors Kathy Najimy, Marisa Tomei and Michelle Hurd also attended the court hearing to represent the Time's Up movement.
