New paperwork have been unsealed in the bitter authorized battle between Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre and Harvard regulation professor Alan Dershowitz.
The trove relates, in half, to Dershowitz’s effort to subpoena and depose billionaire Les Wexner for proof in his counter swimsuit of Giuffre.
The regulation professor is hoping to point out that Giuffre tried to extort Wexner — the previous head of Victoria Secret’s guardian firm who has ties to multi-millionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
In a letter to Choose Loretta Preska requesting that Wexner be deposed and compelled handy over paperwork referring to his relationship with Epstein and Giuffre, Dershowitz’s lawyer stated it will likely be “key proof at trial.”
“The data sought from Wexner goes to the core of Professor Dershowitz’s case,” his lawyer wrote in the July 23 letter that was unsealed Monday.
Dershowitz can also be asking that Wexner’s lawyer, John Zeiger, be deposed and be compelled to offer paperwork associated to Wexner’s relationship with Epstein accusers.
Wexner claims he has no information he might share in a deposition that backs up Dershowitz’s declare he was extorted by Giuffre, the paperwork present.
In a June 19 letter to Dershowtiz’s lawyer, a lawyer for Wexner stated he might present no data “related” to the declare.
“We imagine Mr. Wexner has no non-privileged data related to a declare or protection on Mr. Dershowitz’s allegations of an extortion scheme,” the letter states.
“As for the remaining allegations in the Lawsuit, we imagine Mr. Wexner’s deposition would impose an unreasonable burden on him as his testimony wouldn’t be related and/or proportional to the wants of the Lawsuits and, in reality, is at finest merely inadmissible extrinsic, collateral proof,” it provides.
Legal professionals for Guiffre wrote in a separate letter that they want the depositions to proceed as a result of they imagine it should show Dershowitz falsely accused her of the extortion plot.
The ruling got here on the one-year anniversary of Epstein’s suicide awaiting trial.
