Manhattan’s district attorney has dropped part of the criminal case against Harvey Weinstein.

The development was announced in court Thursday with Weinstein looking on.

A judge agreed to dismiss allegations by one of three accusers in the case, Lucia Evans.

In a story published a year ago Wednesday, Evans told The New Yorker that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex during a meeting at his office in 2004.

Remaining charges include allegations Weinstein raped a woman in 2013 and forced a sex act on a different woman in 2006.

Weinstein says he is innocent.

His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in court that he believes Evans lied to the grand jury about what happened.


9:40 a.m.

Harvey Weinstein has arrived at a New York courthouse where his lawyers are trying to get the charges dismissed in his criminal case.

Judge James Burke is expected to issue rulings Thursday on defense motions assailing an indictment accusing Weinstein of rape and sexual assault.

The hearing comes a year and a day after The New Yorker first published allegations by one accuser in the case, Lucia Evans.

She says Weinstein forced her into oral sex in 2004.

Weinstein’s lawyers and prosecutors had been wrangling over the part of the indictment pertaining to Evans in recent weeks in closed-door meetings and sealed court papers.

Weinstein is also charged with raping a woman in 2013 and forcing an unwanted sex act on a woman in 2006.
He denies assaulting anyone.
