New York appeals court overturns Harvey Weinstein's 2020 rape conviction from landmark #MeToo trialAP25 April 2024 (LINK)

— In a stinging dissent, Judge Madeline Singas wrote that the majority was "whitewashing the facts to conform to a he-said/she-said narrative", and said the Court of Appeals was continuing a "disturbing trend of overturning juries' guilty verdicts in cases involving sexual violence."

— Weinstein, 72, has been serving a 23-year sentence in a New York prison following his conviction on charges of criminal sex act for forcibly performing oral sex on a TV and film production assistant in 2006 and rape in the third degree for an attack on an aspiring actress in 2013. He will remain imprisoned because he was convicted in Los Angeles in 2022 of another rape and sentenced to 16 years in prison.

— Court documents reveal that Ghislaine Maxwell confirmed former President Bill Clinton had traveled on Epstein's private jet, although it is unknown how many times. Epstein's email to Maxwell referenced a "Clinton dinner" and alleged involvement of Stephen Hawking in an underage orgy, as reported in the unsealed documents. The released documents provide details from a lawsuit filed by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who accused Epstein of sexually abusing her as a minor and alleged that Maxwell aided in the abuse. Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's former girlfriend, is serving a 20-year prison sentence for recruiting underage girls and is now appealing her conviction.

US TV star Danny Masterson sentenced to 30 years to life for two rapes at height of fame in 2001-3 after drugging September 2023 (LINK)

— Throughout the trial, prosecutors argued that the Church of Scientology had helped cover up the assaults — an allegation the organisation has categorically denied. At the time of the attacks, Masterson and all three of his accusers were Scientologists. Several of the women said it took them years to come forward because Church of Scientology officials discouraged them from reporting the rape to police. In its statement after the verdict in May, the Church of Scientology said there was "not a scintilla of evidence supporting the scandalous allegations that the Church harassed the accusers".
