Those who claim to have been assaulted by Scrubs co-executive producer and writer Eric Weinberg say that he has had his court date postponed since his arrest in July.

On Friday, August 12, the District Attorney’s office was going to formally bring the charges against Weinberg (who had been arrested in 2014 on suspicion of rape) and allow him to enter a plea.

On Thursday, the purported survivors were advised by the Deputy District Attorney (DDA) handling the case, Marlene Martinez, that more time was needed to analyze a considerable amount of material presented by Los Angeles Police Department detectives.

On July 14, LAPD officers visited Weinberg’s home in Los Feliz and subsequently detained him there. A criminal complaint states that Weinberg abused several women between 2012 and 2019, with some of the victims possibly dating back to the 1990s. According to the story, Weinberg would invite ladies to his house under the guise of a photoshoot and then assault them.

From the late 1990s until 2016, Weinberg was a regular at the studio’s writers rooms. His most notable work is on the hit NBC series Scrubs, where he served as co-executive producer for over 100 episodes between 2002 and 2006. He worked in the same capacity for one season on both the Showtime series Californication starring David Duchovny and the FX series Anger Management with Charlie Sheen.

His five Emmy nominations are for his work on Scrubs and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.

However, a new court date has not been set by the District Attorney’s office.
