Sarah Ransome dropped lawsuit for an undisclosed settlement
Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has settled another lawsuit with a woman he reportedly recruited as his sex slave.
Epstein and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell where sued by Sarah Ransome in Manhattan federal court last year for claims he forced her into sex acts in 2006 and 2007.
Ransome also alleged that she was forced to have sex with several of his powerful elite friends, one of which was his lawyer, Alan Dershowitz.
But on Thursday, Ransome withdrew her lawsuit against Epstein following an undisclosed settlement.
‘We are pleased with the settlement. It provides as much compensation as money can provide for the horrific damage done by sex trafficking,’ said her lawyer, David Boies.
‘Of course, she didn’t have sex with me. I never had sex with anyone except my wife,’ Dershowitz told The New York Post.
‘I’ve never met this woman; I don’t know her, I never heard of her. She just made it up completely.’
But court papers alleged she was repeatedly asked to perform sexual acts on the business magnate.
‘Each time she was so instructed she was also required to perform a sexual act with Epstein,’ the court papers stated.
Last week we reported the Clinton-linked billionaire financier will also no longer have face his victims in court after escaping his child sex abuse trial by settling the case out of court for an undisclosed sum.
The DM reported Earlier this week, Ransome also alleged she was ‘directed’ to have sex with Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz – according to the New York Daily News.
That allegation was reported in a November 7 telephone conference according to the report, the transcript of which has since been sealed until the end of the month.
Dershowitz would have been defending Epstein at the time of the claimed sexual encounter, having been appointed to work on the case in 2005 when some underage girls began coming forward and informing police they were paid to have sex.
Ransome is the second woman to allege that she had sex with Dershowitz at the behest of Epstein.
Virginia Roberts alleged in a court affidavit that she had sex with the lawyer six times.
Roberts claims that she was just 16 the first time she had sex with Epstein.
Dershowitz has disputed that claim for years and said that he only once received a massage from one of Epstein’s female employees and that the woman was not a minor.
Epstein, an American billionaire, was jailed on child prostitution charges in 2008.
The hedge fund tycoon served just 13 months of an 18-month jail term after entering an unusual ‘non-prosecution deal’ with prosecutors in Florida.
He had pleaded guilty to two counts of seducing girls as young as 14 for prostitution.
