- 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.'”
“Documents released in the sex-trafficking case against the late millionaire pedophile’s pal, Ghislaine Maxwell, on Friday show that lawyers for one of his accusers, Virginia Giuffre, told prosecutors at the time that the British socialite took sexually explicit photos of the younger woman regularly and even gave one to Epstein for his birthday — when Virginia was 16.
The discussion came during a February 2016 meeting between a New York assistant US attorney and a trio of lawyers representing Giuffre.”

“Epstein’s former chef Perry Lang volunteered to speak with federal agents after the alleged victim of sexual assault, Virginia Giuffre, wrote a letter to him asking Lang to provide help in her case against the Duke of York.
Prince Andrew faces more difficulties as the former chef of the convicted paedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, is now “fully cooperating” with the FBI.
Perry Lang had worked for the former financier from 1999 to 2003, and reportedly flew next to him and the Duke of York in Epstein’s private jet, according to unnamed sources cited by the Mirror.”

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.”
