Harvard Law Professor was accused of having intimate relations with an underage victim of Jeffrey Epstein. In a lawsuit that followed, the lawyers of the accuser acknowledged it was a mistake to have accused Dershowitz. They later struck any mention of the accusation from public records.
“Last January, Dershowitz filed a sworn statement in which he denied having sex with an underage girl while visiting the island of financier Jeffrey Epstein. Dershowitz was also accused of having sex with a minor on Epstein’s private plane. In a statement issued on Friday, Paul G. Cassell and Bradley J. Edwards, lawyers for Virginia Roberts, the woman who alleged she was forced to have sex with Dershowitz and others, said they “acknowledge that it was a mistake to have filed sexual misconduct accusations against Dershowitz.”
