Former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz is being accused of having sex with an underage woman as part of a lawsuit targeting fiancier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, a client of Dershowitz’s. Dershowitz is strongly denying the allegations and is calling for the attorneys who filed the motion to be disbarred. The two lawyers are former federal judge Paul G. Cassell who is currently a law professor at the University of Utah and personal injury lawyer Bradley J. Edwards, who says he’s working on the case on a pro bono basis.
Dershowitz says the lawyers filed the motion without doing any investigation. “These lawyers engaged in unethical behavior and should be disbarred,” he said. “It’s the legal equivalent of scribbling something on a toilet stall and then running away. They didn’t think there would be any response, and they will rue the day that they filed this unethical complaint, because they, I believe, will be disbarred.” Prince Andrew is also accused and named in the lawsuit.
