Dershowitz V. Netflix, Inc. Et Al

A retired Harvard Law School professor, Alan Dershowitz, has filed a lawsuit against Netflix, Leroy & Morton Productions, Radical Media, Lisa Bryant, and Joseph Berlinger for defamation, breach of contract, promissory estoppel, and fraudulent inducement. The lawsuit stems from the release of the four-part documentary series on Jeffrey Epstein, titled Filthy Rich, on Netflix in May 2020. Dershowitz claims that the defendants intentionally misled him about their intentions for his participation in the series and portrayed him in a defamatory manner by promoting false allegations of sexual misconduct against him. He is seeking damages in excess of $75,000 and a jury trial. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, which has jurisdiction over the case due to diversity of citizenship and the defendants' business activities in Florida. The lawsuit also involves allegations of sexual abuse made against Professor Dershowitz by Virginia Giuffre, which he denies, and a defamation claim filed against him by Giuffre's attorneys, which was struck from the lawsuit. Additionally, the lawsuit involves allegations that a director and executive producer of the Netflix documentary series on Epstein, named Bryant, promised to include evidence provided by Dershowitz in the series but failed to do so, resulting in breach of contract and defamation claims.

United States of America v. Robert Hunter Biden

Summary: Hunter Biden is currently embroiled in a lawsuit, accused of purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018 while allegedly using illegal substances. Despite denying drug use on the necessary paperwork, if found guilty, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison along with substantial fines. Biden's defense team contends that the charges are politically driven, asserting that Biden's temporary possession of an unloaded firearm did not constitute a public safety risk. They intend to contest the charges, leveraging an agreement with the prosecution, recent federal court decisions, and potential Second Amendment defenses. This case could potentially ignite wider discussions about Second Amendment rights, especially as the Supreme Court is poised to deliberate on a related issue concerning gun ownership for individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Opinions are divided among political and legislative figures, with some speculating that advocates of the Second Amendment might oppose the law that prohibits gun ownership for drug users.
