Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre’s defamation lawsuit against Alan Dershowitz — who she claimed sexually assaulted her as a teenager — was voluntarily dismissed on Tuesday, according to court documents viewed by Insider.
Giuffre admitted that she may have been mistaken in accusing Dershowitz of abusing her, according to a joint statement obtained by The New York Times.
The Times said it verified the authenticity of the statement with one of Dershowitz’s lawyers. A lawyer for Giuffre would not comment on the statement, but confirmed that the case had been settled, The Times reported.
Insider reached out to lawyers for both Giuffre and Dershwotiz for comment on Tuesday but did not immediately receive a response from either party.
Earlier this year, Giuffre settled another lawsuit against Britain’s Prince Andrew, who she also accused of sexually abusing her as a teenager. The Telegraph reported that the prince paid Giuffre $16 million, though the settlement ended without him claiming responsibility for the abuse.
