CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Variety reports:

Alan Dershowitz, legal scholar and Harvard Law School professor emeritus, is a fan of “The Good Fight.” But the famed attorney is preparing to sue ViacomCBS and the producers of the CBS All Access legal drama for referring to him in the final episode of the show’s fourth season as a “shyster” in connection with his representation of the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein, who was convicted of soliciting sex with underage girls in 2008, committed suicide last year while in federal prison as he awaited trial on new sex trafficking charges. Dershowitz’s lawyers on July 17 sent a letter to CBS, “Good Fight” co-creators, and others connected with the show demanding the CBS All Access stop airing the content in question, a retraction of the statement and a public apology.
