Weinstein, who is currently serving a 23-year sentence in upstate New York, is charged with rape, sexual assault and other crimes related to five incidents that allegedly occurred between 2004 and 2013 .
But in Erie County, New York, Judge Kenneth Case ultimately dismissed their arguments on Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Weinstein, 69, would likely not be shipped to California until July, at the earliest.
Weinstein faces up to 140 years in prison if convicted in the Los Angeles case.
Weinstein became the face of the #MeToo movement in 2017 after The New Yorker magazine and The New York Times published articles detailing allegations by women claiming that he had committed widespread sexual misconduct against them.
The co-founder of entertainment company Miramax was convicted in February 2020 by the Manhattan Supreme Court of a first-degree felony sex act against production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and third-degree rape for assaulting the aspiring actress Jessica Mann in a hotel room in 2013.
Weinstein’s lawyers appealed his conviction in April.
During his career, Weinstein produced award-winning films including “Pulp Fiction”, “Shakespeare in Love” and “Gangs of New York”.
