Cheryl Bader, a former federal prosecutor, told NBC that in both the Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby cases, it’s important to note that the accusers’ credibility was not the reason the convictions were overturned.

“This feels like a blow to the #MeToo movement, and I think this ruling will retraumatize victims, but I’m hoping the victims will see the court’s ruling in a limited way,” Bader said. “Hopefully, this won’t dissuade victims from coming forward,” she said.
