False sex assault accusations against Dershowitz?

Jane Doe #1, Jane Doe #2, Jane Doe #3, and Jane Doe #4,  if you have been harmed by Dershowitz or believe that he committed a crime, go to the police. At least file a civil law suit directly against Dershowitz!

But that’s not what you did. Instead, you’re indirectly accusing Dershowitz through innuendo in a civil law suit (to which he was not even named!). You’re engaging in a gutless and sleazy smear campaign. Without evidence, Mesdames Doe, you’re wanna-be ringmasters in a media circus. 


To be clear, sexual assault is a crime for which perpetrators should be prosecuted and punished if found culpable. Such prosecution in a court of law should be based on credible, verifiable evidence, rather than innuendo.

The only reason to engage in a media circus to air accusations of sexual assault without evidence is to engage in character assassination. Without evidence, Dershowitz is being slimmed. It’s extortion.

Dershowitz is indirectly accused of sexual assault in a civil suit to which he is not event a defendant. The suit is one against the U.S. government (the defendant), in which Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2 (the nameless plaintiffs) claim that the government  failed to protect their rights when the government entered a plea deal with financier Jeffrey Epstein (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Epstein), who spent 13 months in jail in 2008 to 2009 for a state felony charge of solicitation of prostitution involving a minor.

Jane Doe #3 (Virginia Roberts) (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-30692699) and Jane Doe #4 now wish to join the law suit as plaintiffs.

Dershowitz is vigorously defending himself. He has filed a sworn declaration:

Never under any circumstances have I ever had any sexual contact of any kind with Jane Doe #3,whose alleged identity has been referenced by the BBC. (Her identity was disclosed because she “waived her anonymity in an interview with the Mail on Sunday in 2011”.)

I have never had any sexual contact of any kind with any of the Jane Does mentioned in the law suit. I have never had any sexual contact with any underage person, or with any person associated with Jeffrey Epstein. I have never had sexual contact with any of them on an airplane, Caribbean Island, New Mexico, Palm Beach, New York or anywhere else. I unconditionally deny in the strongest terms without any reservations or doubt all of the sexual allegations made by Jane Doe #3 and her lawyers “waived her anonymity in an interview with the Mail on Sunday in 2011”.)

Now Dershowitz files a motion to intervene in the civil law suit. He also aims to file a defamation action against the two lawyers and the woman and disbarment proceedings against the two lawyers (http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2015/01/02/dershowitz-im-an-innocent-victim-of-an-extortion-conspiracy/).

I root for the evidence to come forth. If the evidence shows that the accusations against Dershowitz are supportable, he should be vigorously prosecuted in criminal and civil venues. But if – as Dershowitz avers (http://www.scribd.com/doc/251684858/Alan-Dershowitz-Rebuts-Rape-Charges) – the accusations are false, Mesdames Doe and their agents should be the ones to be vigorously prosecuted in criminal and civil venues.
