Boies listed a series of news articles as examples of Dershowitz’s alleged defamation campaign against him in the complaint filed in New York County Supreme Court on Thursday

” . . . The suit is the latest salvo in a bitter court fight between the two marquee lawyers. Boies represents two women who said Epstein forced them to have sex with Dershowitz when they were teenagers. Dershowitz, who had represented Epstein, denies the allegations and claims the women, Virginia Giuffre and Sarah Ransome, worked with Boies to cook up false claims against him.
Dershowitz “has engaged in a campaign to attack and vilify each of the lawyers who have represented his victims,” Boies said in a complaint filed Thursday in state court in Manhattan.”

Defamation accusations fly in feud between Alan Dershowitz and David Boies
“Their track records of “attacking the victim” and using investigators to “background” the accusers, detectives, and prosecutors was legendary. Those that could not be bought off, or who were not friends willing to trade favors — were threatened, attacked, or scared off. Both of these lawyers would create such chaos; cross-suits; and then spin so much politically-motivated bullshit that it would cloud the entire civil and criminal landscape around Monster and Mari.”
