NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer for the actress Paz de la Huerta (HWEHR’-tah) says an issue with a request for medical records in the Harvey Weinstein investigation has been resolved.

Attorneys had filed a motion last week saying the Manhattan district attorney’s subpoena was too broad. It sought all records from a therapist who recalled the “Boardwalk Empire” actress recounting how Weinstein raped her. Her attorney says they’ve worked out an agreement for a limited review of material.

The attorney says their goal was to prioritize her privacy.

De la Huerta called police on Oct. 25 to report the 2010 allegations.

Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate behavior. Weinstein has denied non-consensual contact with any women.

In Los Angeles, an unnamed actress sued the media mogul alleging sexual battery.
