    Harvey Weinstein's lawyers want a New York court to throw out sexual assault charges against him.

    Lawyers for the former movie titan-turned-#MeToo villain filed notice Friday they'll seek dismissal of the case. Among other arguments, they say the grand jury that indicted Weinstein should have been told about emails from one of his three accusers: a woman who said he raped her in 2013.

    One message, less than a month after the alleged attack, expresses appreciation for "all you do for me." Another, days later, says "it would be great to see you again."

    The Manhattan District Attorney's office hasn't immediately commented.

    Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to the rape charge and to sex charges involving two other women in Manhattan.
