Harvey Weinstein’s retrial in N.Y. rape case expected after Labor Day

NEW YORK — Former film producer Harvey Weinstein’s rape case is expected to be retried sometime after the Labor Day holiday, a judge said Wednesday, as the frail-looking defendant made his first Manhattan court appearance in years.

Weinstein’s 2020 conviction in the rape case was overturned last week by New York state’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, which determined that rulings by the original judge allowed prejudicial evidence into the proceeding. Jurors at the 2020 trial heard testimony from women who were not part of the case but were allowed to speak about alleged misconduct.
