Michelle Williams was named best female actor in a TV movie or miniseries for her role in Fosse/Verdon at the 26th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

“I’ve tried my very best to live a life of my own making,” she continued, “not just a series of events that happened to me but one that I can stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over, sometimes messy and scrawling, sometimes careful and precise, but one that I had carved with my own hand. And I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose.” The progression—from artistry to agency to electoral urgency—was as beautifully angled as a Bob Fosse pose. Our political could take notes on fusing the personal and the political.

[June 6 2019]
Michelle Williams is expected to receive an Emmy nomination for Fosse/Verdon when they are announced next month. It would be her first. The show, though, hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire the way Murphy’s shows are pop culture centerpieces, and it lags behind “Fargo” in critical acclaim, standing at a serviceable 68 on Metacritic. But “Fosse/Verdon” did have its best episode of the season with the seventh hour, which focused on Bob Fosse (Rockwell) and Gwen Verdon‘s (Williams) original production of “Chicago” and featured a dynamite turn from Williams.

*5/31/19 update: The series came to a natural conclusion so it’s clear that there won’t be a second season of Fosse/Verdon.

Dominique Huett will remove herself from the Harvey Weinstein settlement in order to pursue her own claim. Huett has retained a new attorney, Douglas Wigdor, who represents two others who have opted out. Wigdor believes the $500,000 Huett was offered was “not fair”. This is a suit for the alleged assault under New York’s recently enacted Child Victims Act, which extends the amount of time a victim has to bring a claim (until their 55th birthday in some cases).

Douglas H. Wigdor, attorney for three women, Kaja Sokola, Wedil David and Jane Doe – a pseudonym for the same woman who will testify against Weinstein when he is tried next month on charges of rape, predatory sexual assault and criminal sexual act – claim, like many before them, that Weinstein assaulted them. This filing points to a split in approaches. Newly enacted child victims legislation, which extends the age at which a victim can bring a claim for past crimes to 55.

[December 18 2019]
Kaja Sokola alleges she was assaulted in 2002. Harvey Weinstein asked her to lunch in the interest of helping her pursue an acting career. She agreed but alleges his driver brought them to Weinstein’s apartment instead. There, she claims “he terrified and sexually abused her.”Her attorneys, Douglas Wigdor and Kevin Mintzer: “While others may have decided to settle, albeit under some of the most offensive and one-sided terms, we hope that the filing of this complaint encourages other victims and the New York Attorney General to join us as we continue our efforts at holding Harvey Weinstein and his enablers accountable.”

They’re bringing a battery suit for the alleged 2002 assault under New York’s recently enacted Child Victims Act, which extends the amount of time a victim has to bring a claim (until their 55th birthday in some cases).

Weinstein in Italy

Harvey Weinstein’s bail was increased from $1 million to $5 million on December 11 2019 over allegations he violated bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor.   Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi told the court that the person monitoring Weinstein does not believe the problems due to were technical glitches. While the monitoring now appears to be working, Illuzzi said she thought that was because of the threat of new bail.   Weinstein will be undergoing back surgery on December 12 2019. “If you have any further medical issues, the court will not be terribly understanding,” Judge James Burke said.

[ December 6 2019  Barbara Ziv, Deborah Davis, Elizabeth Loftus, will testify   ]

Harvey Weinstein violated his bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor, which left his whereabouts unrecorded for hours at a time,.   Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi accused him of leaving home a piece of the monitoring technology that keeps the ankle bracelet activated.   Defense attorney Donna Rotunno denied it was deliberate. Decision is deferred until next week.

[December 3 2019]

Weinstein is due to appear December 6 2019 at a bail hearing necessitated by changes that go into effect Jan. 1.

[November 29 2019]

New York judge James Burke on November 26 2019 issued an ominbus ruling that declined Weinstein’s request to unseal the names of two complaining witnesses, one of which is reportedly Sciorra, and made several other rulings on witness testimony.

Barbara Ziv, an expert on sexual assault and rape trauma syndrome, will be allowed to testify over Weinstein’s objections. Weinstein’s experts on human memory, Deborah Davis and Elizabeth Loftus, will also be allowed to testify — but they won’t be allowed to provide testimony on issues of memory specifically tied to sexual interactions and “the phenomenon known as ‘voluntary unwanted sex.'”

Weinstein asked the court to dismiss two counts of Predatory Sexual Assault, arguing that it requires that the defendant had committed an “underlying crime” and had engaged in an “aggravating crime.” Here the underlying crime is alleged to be a July 2016 rape and the aggravating crime is an alleged rape during the winter of 1993-1994, and Weinstein argued the alleged aggravating crime happened before the Predatory Sexual Assault statute was enacted in 2006 and therefore the two counts that relied upon it should be dismissed. Alternatively, he argued that they should be dismissed because the alleged victim of the mid-’90s rape can’t further narrow down when it happened. The producer also asked the court to dismiss the superseding indictment as a whole on procedural grounds.

Burke denied all three requests.

There’s a grand jury indictment against Harvey Weinstein, pushing his trial back to 2020 but allowing one of his alleged victims to testify against him. The new indictment gets around statute of limitations issues pertaining to Annabella Sciorra’s testimony,

Judge James Burke told them the new trial date of Jan. 6 was firm. To make the point, he stared at the defendant and asked, “Mr. Weinstein, do you want to go to trial?”

“Not really,” Weinstein quipped.

A new and sealed grand jury indictment was issued August 22 2019 against the fallen movie mogul and accused sexual predator.

[August 20 2019]
Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said in a letter to the judge and defense attorneys on August 13 2019 that prosecutors would re-present their case to a new grand jury starting on August 16 2019 in order to include the testimony of a woman who claims Weinstein raped her at her apartment in New York in the winter of 1993-1994.

Such changes in an indictment give the defense up to six weeks to respond, which would postpone the already pushed back trial start. Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer Arthur Aidala has moved for a change of venue on August 16 2019. Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office declined comment August 20 2019 on the new filing. A response is expected to be formally filed in the next few days.

[August 19 2019]

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office planned to present another alleged victim of Weinstein’s to a grand jury to support predatory sexual assault charges against him, according to court filings.
The accuser is Annabella Sciorra, the actress known for her role in “The Sopranos” who says Weinstein violently raped her in 1993, Prosecutors directed Weinstein to appear before the grand jury August 15 2019 if he wanted to testify, court records show. The grand jury must vote on a new indictment before its term ends Aug. 26, just two weeks before the scheduled start of Weinstein’s trial on Sept. 9, the filings indicate.

[July 28 2019]

Justice James Burke said in a one-line decision on August 7 2019: “The request for a change in bail conditions is denied.” He refused to allow Harvey Weinstein to travel to Europe to consult on a stage production of Cinema Paradiso, a 1988 film that he was involved with that won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 62nd Academy Awards.

Weinstein is set to go to trial on September 9 in New York for rape and could spend the rest of his life in prison if found guilty. Thus, the pleas from his attorneys to allow him to travel to Italy and Spain was quickly turned down. Weinstein wanted to travel Aug. 12 through Aug. 22 for the project.

Justice James Burke refused to allow testimony from Annabella Sciorra, who accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting her in 1993, but also refused Weinstein’s legal team’s bid to toss out some counts, Burke rejected prosecutors’ argument that language in the predatory sexual assault statute gave them “leeway” in terms of introducing “additional persons” at trial, and granted the defense motion to exclude Sciorra from the case.

Skin Traffik is due out in the UK at the end of Summer 2014, maybe.

The German Finance Ministry is investigating 500 cum-ex arrangements to the value of some €5.5bn. Some €2.4bn has already been recovered. Cum-ex trades involved bankers, lawyers and traders all across Europe.

It is believed that around 100 banks are being investigated by the German authorities, including big names such as Bank of New York Mellon, Deutsche Bank AG, and Societe Generale SA.

The two British citizens, Martin Shields, 41, and Nicholas Diable, 38, are accused of having defrauded the German state of €447.5m (£405m) from London’s banking district with so-called cum-ex trading schemes. The trial, which is scheduled to last until January next year, is being followed with great interest across Europe because many more investment bankers, working for clients including Deutsche Bank, Barclays and Sweden’s SEB, are suspected to have practised cum-ex deals between 2001 and 2012, when legislators closed the loopholes that made the practice possible.

At least 10 other European countries beyond Germany have been affected by German banks tax fraud practices, and the damage caused to state treasuries could be as high as €55.2 billion ($63.4 billion). Contrived “dual ownership” allowed both parties to claim tax rebates even though both were not entitled to it. With the process having gone undetected for years, billions in tax went uncollected by the German state, mostly in the form of rebates which should never have been paid out at all.    Industry experts say the practice went on for decades before it was properly grappled with. The scandal came to light in 2016 when it emerged that several German banks had exploited a legal loophole which allowed two parties simultaneously to claim ownership of the same shares.

Hanno Berger, the central suspect in the investigation, now lives in exile in the Swiss Alps. He advised the Australian bank Macquarie, another caught up in the scandal, on cum-ex trading but claims he was not paid for it. He says the scheme was based on a legitimate legal loophole. “They (the German state) cannot punish others for their mistakes,” he said.
