NEW YORK — The Latest on the court appearance of Harvey Weinstein (all times local):

10:35 a.m.

Harvey Weinstein's attorney says that his defense is set to "begin our fight" in the courtroom after he pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sex act charges in New York.

Weinstein appeared before a judge in Manhattan Tuesday after a grand jury charged him last week with raping a woman in a hotel room and forcing another to perform oral sex in his office.

Ben Brafman called the case against Weinstein "eminently defensible" based on what they have learned about the evidence.

He says that as bad as the crime of rape is, it's equally reprehensible to be falsely accused.

His bail was previously set at $1 million, allowing him to remain free while he awaits trial. He is scheduled to return to court Sept. 20.

Brafman says Weinstein is "holding up reasonably well."
