Daily Mail [UK] –
- Roberts on Monday filed a civil suit in New York seeking ‘substantial’ damages
- Lawyer said bombshell lawsuit ‘based on her being lent out to Prince Andrew’
- She claims she was sexually abused in London, Manhattan and the Caribbean
- The incidents all allegedly took place in 2001, when she was 17 years old
- Prince Andrew has always vehemently denied sexual contact with Roberts
‘ . . . A source said: ‘This could be devastating for Andrew. If he chooses to fight it and is deposed [forced to give evidence], then those depositions could end up being made public.
‘If he ignores it, he could be found guilty in absentia which would be a public relations disaster.'”
“A US federal appeals court rejected an attempt by Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, to block the release of a massive deposition she gave for a 2016 civil suit filed by one of Epstein’s accusers.”
. . . “This is good news for not just the victims of Epstein, but for victims everywhere,” Spencer Kuvin, a lawyer who has represented several of Epstein’s alleged victims, told the Herald. “The Courts should not be a party to the long history of Epstein and his co-conspirator’s attempts to avoid public scrutiny for their actions. Everyone who was a part of the Epstein sex ring should be concerned.”
David Boies, a lawyer who represents more than a dozen of the US financier’s victims, claimed Andrew has ‘not been prepared to co-operate’

Boies Schiller Sues Jeffrey Epstein Estate on Behalf of 3 Sexual Abuse Accusers
The lawsuits, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, include claims for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress by plaintiffs who said they met Epstein and his companion, Ghislaine Maxwell, between 1995 and 2002.
“Boies Schiller Flexner attorneys on Tuesday sued the estate of Jeffrey Epstein on behalf of at least three women who said they were sexually abused by the deceased financier after being recruited into his alleged sex-trafficking network in New York.”
” . . . The complaint included a reference to former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who she said visited the mansion “on a number of occasions” and “would go upstairs at the same time the young girls were there.” . . . “
Dershowitz denies everything, blah… blah….
“All three lawsuits named Darren Indyke, a longtime attorney for Epstein, and Richard Kahn, who were named executors of Epstein’s estate following his apparent suicide in August. Indyke and Kahn are named solely as executors of the estate…”
NOTE how the press still refers to the serial child rapist, Epstein as a “financier” and calls serial child-rapist and pimp, Ghislaine Maxwell a “socialite”.
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
” . . . In November 2018, the Miami Herald reported that Dershowitz said Giuffre’s lawyers coerced her into making up her claims to get money from powerful people, and Boies cited that statement as one example of Dershowitz’s defamation campaign against him.”
” . . . 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.”
