Attorneys in a class action suit against Harvey Weinstein say the former Hollywood mogul is improperly looking to mine the discovery process in Delaware federal court for information to discredit sexual assault claims against him in Manhattan federal court.

The legal flare-up has resulted in filings and counter-filings between the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, as each side has accused the other of trying to manipulate proceedings in one for an advantage in the other.
