Alan Dershowitz counter - sues Jeffrey Epstien victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre and denies he ever met or had sex with her, claiming she is just out for a 'payday'. Dershowitz 's counter-suit, which is a response to Giuffre 's legal action against him for defamation , claims her lawyers were behind her

Dershowitz alleges Giuffre and her lawyers at Boies, Schiller Flexner LLP targeted wealthy Epstein associates, including Leslie Wexner, the billionaire founder and CEO of L Brands and owner of Victoria's Secret. According to the lawsuit, "David Boies personally met with Wexner's lawyer in what Wexner's lawyer and wife both described as a 'shakedown.'"

When asked for comment on the accusation that he was part of a shakedown conspiracy that targeted wealthy Epstein associates, attorney David Boies, who formerly represented Giuffre in her defamation lawsuit against Dershowitz, referred CNN to that lawsuit, telling CNN he thinks it "speaks for itself."

CNN has reached out to Giuffre's current attorney Chuck Cooper for comment as well.

In Giuffre's lawsuit, which was filed in April in the Southern District of New York, she accuses Dershowitz -- who used to represent Epstein -- of knowingly making "false and malicious defamatory statements" against her. She claims to have been a victim of sex trafficking and abuse by Epstein when she was underage.

Giuffre's lawsuit alleges "Defendant Dershowitz was Epstein's attorney, close friend, and co-conspirator. Dershowitz was also a participant in sex trafficking, including as one of the men to whom Epstein lent out Plaintiff for sex."

Giuffre also alleges in her suit that Dershowitz, 80, was a participant in Epstein's sex trafficking operation, and that she had sex with Dershowitz as part of that operation. Giuffre has made similar allegations against Dershowitz in court filings in the past.

Dershowitz has repeatedly denied the allegations, including throughout his filing. He is seeking unspecified damages.
