Harvey Weinstein's lawyer in his rape case is a battle-tested tactician willing to fight for his client inside and outside court. Attorney Benjamin Brafman navigated similar media frenzy in 2011 when he successfully defended former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn against accusations that he tried to rape a hotel maid.This time, Brafman's former movie executive client faces more serious allegations of raping one woman in a hotel room, and forcing another to perform oral sex in his office.After Weinstein turned himself in May 25, Brafman came out swinging, telling reporters Weinstein didn't "invent the casting couch in Hollywood."
