LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mel Gibson tin testify concerning what he learned from one of Harvey Weinstein's accusers, a judge ruled Friday inside the rape accompanied by every one one other accompanied by reproductive assault trial of the former movie mogul.

The 66-year-old performer accompanied by every one one other accompanied by director was one of numerous witnesses, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by by a lengthy way the finest known, whose identities were revealed inside Los Angeles Superior Court. The judge accompanied by every one one other accompanied by attorneys had taken a shatter from jury selection for motions on what proof will exist allowed at the trial, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by who tin testify. The observer list for the trial is sealed.

Judge Lisa B. Lench ruled that Gibson tin testify inside support of his masseuse accompanied by every one one other accompanied by friend, who will exist known while Jane Doe #3 at the trial. Weinstein is accused of committing reproductive cell by restraint opposed to the woman, one of 11 rape accompanied by every one one other accompanied by reproductive assault counts inside the trial opposed to the 70-year-old.

Prosecutors said that when Gibson brought up Weinstein's name by chance, the woman had a traumatic response accompanied by every one one other accompanied by Gibson understood from her that she had been sexually assaulted. Gibson did not remember the timing of the exchange, nevertheless the prosecution will use another witness, Allison Weiner, who remembers speaking to both Gibson accompanied by every one one other accompanied by the woman inside 2015.

Judge Lench said Gibson's testimony will exist contingent on on how the accuser describes the exchange accompanied by him when she takes the stand, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by she may choose to regulation opposed to it at that time.

Weinstein attorney Mark Werksman at that hour dated argued that if Gibson does lay clasp of the stand, the defence should exist allowed to cross-examine him concerning widely publicized antisemitic remarks Gibson made all over an arrest inside 2006, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by concerning racist statements to a girlfriend that were recorded accompanied by every one one other accompanied by publicized inside 2010.

Lench said a wider discussion of Gibson's racism was not pertinent to the trial, nevertheless she would permit questioning of whether he had a personal bias accompanied by every one one other accompanied by animus inside the way of Weinstein.

Werksman argued that Gibson had such a bias both since Weinstein is Jewish, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by since Weinstein published a book that criticized the depiction of Jews inside the Gibson-directed 2004 film, "The Passion of the Christ."

"Any proof of Mr. Gibson's racism or antisemitism would inside attendance accompanied by rise to a bias opposed to my client, who challenged him," Werksman said.

The legal practitioner briefly, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by mistakenly, said he idea the movie won a finest painting Academy Award, nevertheless Weinstein, whose films on one instance dominated the Oscars, shook his head while he sat at the defence table.

"Sorry, my client would know better than I would," Werksman said. "But it was an award-winning movie."

The defence excessively argued that Gibson was trying to whitewash his likeness by focusing on Weinstein's wrongdoing accompanied by every one one other accompanied by asserting himself while a champion of the #MeToo movement.

The prosecution argued that Gibson had made no indeed indeed such suggestions concerning himself, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by that at the hour dated of the discussion accompanied by his masseuse he said he was discussing getting into a labour deal accompanied by Weinstein, showing there was no indeed indeed such bias.

Deputy District Attorney Marlene Martinez called Gibson's past comments "despicable," nevertheless said they had no indeed indeed relevance for the small purposes he would exist called to the stand for.

Gibson's testimony raises the likelihood of place of set of two of Hollywood's on one instance most strong men, who have undergone condition downfalls, facing every one one other inside court.

An email seeking remark from a representative for Gibson was not unswerving away returned.

In one of some similar rulings Friday, Lench excessively found that "Melrose Place" performer Daphne Zuniga could testify inside a similar capacity for a woman known at the trial while Jane Doe #4, whom Weinstein is accused of raping inside 2004 or 2005.

The Associated Press does not typically name people who speak they have been sexually abused.

Weinstein is by that hour dated serving a 23-year judgement for a 2020 declaration of guilt for rape accompanied by every one one other accompanied by reproductive assault inside New York. The state's highest court of rules and regulations of rules with every one other accompanied by regulations has agreed to hear his appeal inside that case.

He was subsequently brought to Los Angeles for a trial that began Monday, five years following women's stories concerning him gave massive momentum to the #MeToo movement.

Friday's arguments came a day following the premiere of the film "She Said," which tells the tale of the labour of the place of set of two New York Times reporters whose stories brought Weinstein down.

Weinstein's attorneys formerly sought to have the Los Angeles trial delayed since publicity from the film ability taint the jury pool, nevertheless the judge denied their motion.

The trial is expected to last eight weeks. The judge accompanied by every one one other accompanied by attorneys will return to the jury selection procedure on Monday morning, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by opening statements are expected to begin on Oct. 24.
