Alan Dershowitz has filed counterclaims for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress against a Jeffrey Epstein accuser who has claimed she was forced to have sex with the former Harvard law professor.

Giuffre claimed Dershowitz aimed to damage her credibility with the media by calling her, among other things, a “serial liar” and “prostitute.”
