Jeffrey R. Waxman Quoted in Law360 re Weinstein's Permission to Use Emails Exchanged with Accusers

During a bankruptcy court hearing in Wilmington, Delaware, Judge Walrath gave Harvey Weinstein permission to use emails exchanged with accusers.

In response, class attorney Jeffrey R. Waxman of Morris James LLP said the objection in the bankruptcy discovery motion was intended to close a gap in the New York protective order that could prejudice anonymous accusers. "We want an order from a federal court which specifically precludes [Weinstein] from using any such names or emails that identify such persons," Waxman said of the anonymous accusers.

The plaintiffs in the proposed New York class action are represented by Elizabeth A. Fegan, Emily Brown, Steve W. Berman, Shelby Smith and Jason Zweig of Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, Jeffrey R. Waxman of Morris James LLP and Edward S. Weisfelner and Howard S. Steel of Brown Rudnick LLP.
