The defense team for Harvey Weinstein wins, allowing them to utilize emails from California Governor Newsom’s wife during the trial.

Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood mogul, won a small legal triumph on Monday.

A court ruled that Weinstein’s defense will be given the chance to interview Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of California Governor Gavin Newsom, regarding an email she reportedly sent to the now 70-year-old two years after allegedly being sexually assaulted.

Judge Lisa Lench in Los Angeles said that the defense could inquire about an email Siebel Newsom made to Weinstein asking for media help, but they couldn’t claim it was in reference to information regarding an affair Gavin Newsom had with a staff member while he was the mayor of San Francisco.

According to Weinstein’s lawyer, Mark Werksman, “Of all things you’d think a woman that is raped by Harvey Weinstein wouldn’t do, it’s ask him how to deal with a sex scandal.”

Werksman’s assertion that Weinstein’s due process was in jeopardy was rejected by the judge, who suggested that Werksman had exaggerated the situation.
