Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s defense team have again — unsuccessfully — sought to have a juror removed because of her reading material.
Weinstein, of course, is on trial for rape and sexual assault; his lawyers argued Tuesday that such reading material violated juror instructions not to “consume media related to the trial,” according to Vulture.
The judge asked the juror a few questions Tuesday, concluded it wasn’t an issue, and reaffirmed his belief when Weinstein’s lawyers again called the reading material into question today.
