Jury selection at Weinstein's rape trial trudges forward

NEW YORK — A sixth day of jury selection at Harvey Weinstein's New York City rape trial has ended after more prospective jurors told a judge they had already made up their minds about the movie mogul.

More than 30 people of 110 screened in a Manhattan courtroom Tuesday claimed they couldn't be impartial if asked to serve.

Supermodel Gigi Hadid caused a stir Monday by emerging as a potential juror.

The scene was more mundane on Tuesday, when one man said he didn't know the defendant but couldn't be fair because he had seen him several times “on the phone screaming at someone.”
