Some of Epstein's accusers had been expected to take the witness stand in Florida this week, at a defamation trial that was brought against Epstein by Bradley Edwards, a lawyer for some of the victims. The case settled Tuesday morning with Epstein issuing an apology to Edwards and paying him an undisclosed sum of money.

But the women still have one more shot at Epstein, a wildly successful hedge fund manager who used to pal around with the likes of presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

A pending suit by some of Epstein's accusers in federal court in Florida is aimed at voiding a non-prosecution agreement that was signed off on by then-U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida Alexander Acosta — arguing that the deal was illegal because dozens of Epstein's victims were never told about it.

If the judge finds there were was a violation of the federal Crime Victims' Rights Act, he could void the deal and Epstein could again face federal charges for what investigators say was his routine of sexually abusing teenage girls in his West Palm Beach mansion during the early 2000s.

2 tier Justice on full display. One set of laws for you and I and a underage rape party for the millionaires. No, that's not even exaggeration. This story is sickening with a glimmer of light.

There's another case working it's way trough the court to bring justice to Epstein.

Because he was connected politically apparently to the USA at the time, Acosta. He was able to get a sweetheart deal which included 12 hour breaks from his light prison sentence. But, the victims are now saying they deserve their day in court.

This is so outrageous, I'm surprised it's not bigger news.

A "deal" for full immunity for him and any co-conspirators...for what? A deal for...for...the victims? No. The state? no. A well-connected Billionaire? Yes.

Acosta should be disbarred.

I wonder if this is why Dershowitz is such a nutter now, just compromised like the rest of these ****ers:
One of Esptein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts, said he had sex with her when she was underage.

“I had sexual intercourse with Dershowitz at least six times,’’ Roberts wrote in a 2015 court affidavit, per the Miami Herald. “The first time was when I was about 16, early on in my servitude to Epstein and it continued until I was 19.”

Dershowitz has vehemently denied that allegation and told Axios that he only got a massage at Epstein’s home.

“What happened was I, um, he lent us, this was well before any of this thing came out, he lent us his house once. And I was there, my grandchildren were there, my daughter was there, and we all got massages,” Dershowitz said.

“And, um, it was therapeutic. I had a therapeutic massage with an old Russian, but I never never … and that was part of when we had his house for about a week during I think it was Christmas vacation,” he said. “Believe me, if I had known that anything improper had ever taken place in that house, I never would have allowed my children, my grandchildren, my wife, my daughter-in-law, my son, to have spent time there. I can tell you categorically there were no inappropriate pictures, no inappropriate anythings. It was like any other house.”

Yup. This is absolutely an example of a two-tiered system. Between Clinton, Trump, and who knows who else, no party has a vested interest in bringing Epstein's crimes fully into the light.... and so this is allowed to happen.

I hope the sweetheart deal gets overturned, and everything comes out, and everyone goes down. If #MeToo is supposed to be about anything, it is supposed to be the argument that powerful men do not get to get away with sexual abuse simply because they are powerful.

Epstein and anyone who allowed his activities to continue should go to jail for life.

No parole.

Makes me sick to think of the victims and this mockery of our justice system.

I keep thing with such high profile people..Dershowitz, Acosta I. The Trump administration now (should never have been confirmed by Republicans originally), etc how this isn’t top news. Maybe that’s why it’s not top news.

Bill Clinton's running buddy?

Perhaps Trump will push Pence aside for Epstein in 2020. After all, he's apparently a 'terrific guy.'

And he got a “massage” at one of Epstein’s places. There was evidence found that proved he was at one, but of course he says it was innocent and has full immunity because of the “deal”. Coincidence.

And Dershowitz is now a right wing line tower for the party that put this Acosta moron in place, and protects him? These boys play in the big leagues of crime and power apparently.

the investigation was blowing up in scope..it was huge...hundreds of girls, across state lines...they shut down the investigation, immunized everyone involved, and did so as quickly and quietly as could be done.

I don't think any of us realize the half of Epstein's activities. I've read blind items for years now about the "Lolita Express" and how on that island, you could have anything you wanted--boys or girls and also the occasional snuff experience. Prince Andrew has been publicly identified as one who "frolicked" there, but I've also read the names of very well-known figures you would never dream could be involved in this depravity. Lots. I won't repeat any of them because this is in the realm of gossip, but there are many names, and reading some of them broke my heart.

I hope all the truth about this and also about Bryan Singer's pool parties and auditions will come out, but this will probably continue to be a "Money talks while baloney walks" thing.

I certainly don't, I haven't heard much until this was pushed on MSNBC a few days ago, so it's all news to me. Seeing that absolutely crazy corruption of justice with the widespread immunity and freezing of the investigation, just turned my blood cold.

What you're reading now barely scratches the surface. The exploitation, especially of minors, is horrifying. Keep in mind that there are poor children on the streets of some countries or in orphanages or who have parents willing to sell them who will never, ever be missed.
