Why Danny Masterson's attacks on Leah Remini aren't helping him in court - 2021-04-22
For months Danny Masterson's criminal defense attorney Tom Mesereau has been making boisterous speeches in court, complaining about press interest in the case that has the That '70s Show actor facing 45 years to life in prison for violently raping three different women. Mesereau has repeatedly accused the prosecution and police of leaking information to the press, and has asked for judges to keep cameras out of the courtroom.
And that's why it was particularly rich to see Mesereau playing to the press this week in a failed attempt to delay the case.
It sure looks like it was Mesereau or someone else in Masterson's camp who fed a copy of their motion to delay the case to TMZ, an organization whose leader, Harvey Levin, is very tight with Mesereau.
