Sexual assault allegations
On December 30, 2014, a Florida court filing alleged Alan Dershowitz was one of several prominent figures to have participated in sexual activities with a minor; that filing alleged that Dershowitz had sex on several occasions with an underage girl later identified as Virginia Roberts,[91] employed by financier and convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein.[92] Dershowitz, a personal friend of Epstein, had represented Epstein in his 2008 criminal conviction.

Dershowitz vehemently denied the allegations and challenged Roberts to make her claims under oath; on January 21, 2015, Roberts submitted a sworn declaration re-affirming the allegations.[93][94]

Dershowitz sought disbarment of the lawyers filing the suit[95] while lawyers representing the alleged victim countered by filing suit against Dershowitz for defamation.[96] That suit settled in 2016.[97] Dershowitz alleges unfairness in the United States legal system, saying lawyers can make false accusations against him or against other parties in court documents while the accused cannot sue for defamation due to litigation privilege.[98]

In April 2015, U.S. District Court Judge Kenneth A. Marra, presiding over a 2008 lawsuit seeking to re-open the Epstein case, ordered “sensational” allegations against Prince Andrew and Dershowitz stricken from the record as having no bearing on the lawsuit’s goal of re-opening the case.[99][100][101]

Oh please let one of them be the chucklefuck who was tossing M-80s on the train tracks outside my apartment at 12am and scaring the SHIT out of my babies.Seriously, I don’t even see how anyone can get excited enough about 4th of July to blow their dick off this year. I can barely summon the enthusiasm for America to light a sparkler.

ETA: In retrospect, I would love have lit a sparkler in solidarity with Therese Patricia Okoumou. Fuck yeah.

According to IMDB, Woods hasn’t worked very much for the last few years. He’s done some voice acting for an animated cartoon, and also for an upcoming video game.
