Former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz is planning to sue ViacomCBS and the producers of “The Good Fight” after the legal drama called him a “shyster” and implied he had participated in illicit sexual conduct during the season four finale on the Jeffrey Epstein case, according to a report.
On July 17th, Dershowitz’s lawyers sent a letter to “The Good Fight” showrunners demanding they remove the content and issue a public apology, according to Variety.
In the letter, Dershowitz’s attorney, Imran Ansari, wrote of the May 28 finale — titled, “The Gang Discovers Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein:
“Clearly, the dialogue and the context in which it is made, with words loaded with innuendo such as ‘massage,’ ‘Epstein,’ the ‘Virgin Islands,’ in combination with the word ‘shyster,’ falsely suggests that Professor Dershowitz engaged in sexual conduct, i.e. a ‘massage,’ with an underage girl associated with Epstein, and is crooked, unscrupulous and lying about it, i.e. a ‘shyster.’ ”
