Dylan Howard, a former National Enquirer editor who allegedly dug up opposition research on actress Rose McGowan on behalf of her accused rapist, Harvey Weinstein, has hired law firms on three continents in an effort to suppress publication of journalist Ronan Farrow’s exposé Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators. The firm’s are New York’s Kravet & Vogel, Sydney-based McLachlan Thorpe Partners and the London-based Tweed law firm.
