Famed Attorney David Boies representing Dershowitz accuser, now represents 7 Epstein accusers

(Many will remember Boies from Bush v Gore, successful US government v Microsoft, and successfully overturning PROP 8 that had banned gay marriage, among many many other high profile cases. Boies has thus far succeeded in four legal challenges from Dershowitz who is attempting to combat sexual assault accusations & litigation --Dersh won't bluster his way out of this. This should become more and more interesting)

DU's legal beagles will especially enjoy this article detailing the back & forth challenges

Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz has filed four bar complaints in three states — all of which have been dismissed — in a quest to disqualify lawyer David Boies and one of his partners who represent a woman accusing Dershowitz of sexually abusing her when she was underage, newly filed court records show.

1. More from the Miami Herald article (linked in OP)

Edwards and Cassell submitted a sworn affidavit in the case, signed by Giuffre, that detailed how she had been recruited into sex trafficking by Epstein and his then-partner, Ghislaine Maxwell. Giuffre met Maxwell in 2000 when Giuffre was a 16-year-old and working as a spa attendant at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s winter home and members-only resort in Palm Beach. (Giuffre’s original affidavit claimed that she was 15, but her employment records subsequently showed that she was 16 when she worked at Mar-a-Lago.)

Giuffre’s affidavit set off a media firestorm when she alleged that one of the people she had been trafficked to by Epstein was Dershowitz. This was a loaded document to add to the victims’ case because Dershowitz had represented Epstein in his criminal investigation and helped negotiate the secret non-prosecution agreement.

The deal included a provision giving immunity to Epstein — and others who were involved in Epstein’s underage sex operation. Many of those co-conspirators have never been identified, and it has given rise to speculation that, if Giuffre’s allegation was true, Dershowitz could have been among those who may have been covered by the immunity provision.

The legal battles between Boies and Dershowitz are fascinating.. Worth reading the whole Miami Herald article if you can. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article232312102.html
