They stated, “We can confirm that Mr. Weinstein has a fever and is being closely monitored by the excellent medical staff at Wende CF for which the entire legal defense team is grateful.”
Additionally, Englemeyer and Rothfield mentioned that the prisoner has “numerous maladies and conditions including a heart condition, high blood pressure and spinal stenosis.” They continued, “We are working with the NYSDOCCS and the excellent team at Wende CF to ensure Mr. Weinstein receives the proper medical attention he needs.”
