Former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz is once again denying having sex with Virginia Giuffre, who for years claimed that the sex traffickers accused Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell directed her to sleep with him when he was 17 years.

Dershowitz’s denial follows the release of another batch of court documents from a 2015 libel suit between Giuffre and Ghislaine Maxwell, unsealed Thursday evening.

Giuffre has publicly accused Epstein and Maxwell of trafficking her since 2000. Maxwell has denied Giuffre’s claims that sparked the lawsuit. He claimed to have had sex with Dershowitz on several occasions.

Dershowitz and Giuffre are also suing libel, a legal battle that sparked in 2019 when Dershowitz denied the allegations and called Giuffre a liar. That lawsuit spawned several counter-cases between the two and their respective lawyers.

Both Giuffre and Dershowitz fought to reveal the documents, but for several reasons.

Giuffre has struggled to expose what he says was a wide range of sex trafficking run by Epstein and Maxwell, involving a number of powerful people. Dershowitz said the documents show that Giuffre is dishonest.

“I am delighted that Judge Loretta Preska ordered the concealment of the documents in the Maxwell case,” wrote Dershowitz in his statement. “I have requested the revocation of all documents, because I have nothing to hide. I have done absolutely nothing wrong, and the documents contain evidence of my total innocence.”

A representative of Giuffre says that the new documents change nothing.

“We have already been to this rodeo with Alan Dershowitz,” said the rep. “For years he has been recycling the same fantasies as his version of the truth.”

Dershowitz, who became a household name when he defended OJ Simpson in his murder trial, had been friends with Epstein in the late 90s and early 200s. He was also part of Epstein’s legal team that brokered the favorable deal in 2008 that allowed the sex offender to spend only 13 months in the county jail while working from home for days.

Epstein died of suicide last August in a federal prison awaiting trial on charges of trafficking.

Giuffre and Dershowitz both claim that the documents prove that they are right

Most of Giuffre’s allegations against powerful men, including Dershowitz, were known prior to Thursday’s dumping of the document. Many details were revealed in a 2,000-page dump of documents from the same case a year ago, which also led Dershowitz to reiterate his claim that Giuffre was dishonest.

Giuffre said she was 17 when Maxwell came to pick her up from President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago spa, where she worked at the time. She was hired as a masseuse for Epstein but said she was treated by Maxwell to have sex with him and others, including the financier Glenn Dubin, the scoutist Jean Luc Brunel and former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson.

Dubin, Brunel and Richardson also denied the allegations.

Maxwell was arrested on July 2 on charges of child sexual acquisition and abuse. His lawyers had fought unsuccessfully to keep the defamation documents sealed. Preska ordered them to be sealed, in part, so that they could be used in the case between Giuffre and Dershowitz.

In his Friday statement, Dershowitz attempted to paint Giuffre as a liar to get money from wealthy men

He accused her of saying he was younger than she was when he met Maxwell and Epstein, that he met Al and Tipper Gore on the private island of Epstein and that President Bill Clinton was transported to the island by Maxwell who was piloting a helicopter.

“It has brought three continents with its accusations against politicians and other high-profile individuals, yet the media has refused to conduct the kind of investigative news it has rightly made against other prosecutors,” said Dershowitz. “I welcome the cancellation of multiple records and a thorough investigation of all the charges, and I am confident that they will demonstrate what I already know for certain: that Virginia Giuffre is a serial liar who deliberately made up stories about me and others hoping to cash in on millions of dollars. “
