The woman — who goes by Jane Doe — voluntarily dismissed the claim "with prejudice," meaning the claim cannot be re-filed. Groff's attorneys tell Radar they aren't shocked at all.

“We are not surprised that the case was voluntarily dropped. Our hearts truly break for any person victimized by Epstein but the truth is – Lesley had no knowledge of and no participation in any of the illegal conduct alleged in the lawsuit,” Michael Bachner and Jon Whitcomb tell us.

This isn't the first time Epstein's former assistant has come out on top. Last year, another case brought against Groff was dropped. It's important to note that no criminal charges have ever been filed against him.

“After a more than two-year investigation by the Department of Justice into Jeffrey Epstein’s conduct, which included lengthy interviews of witnesses and a thorough review of relevant communications, we have been informed that no criminal charges will be brought against Lesley Groff,” his attorney said in a statement.

While on Epstein's employment roster, Groff's daily tasks included making the billionaire businessman's appointments, taking his messages, and setting up meetings.

His legal team is adamant "Lesley never witnessed anything improper or illegal."

Groff's victory comes just hours after Epstein's convicted partner-in-crime Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty on five out of six charges for recruiting and grooming underage girls. Each charge carries a heavy prison sentence.

The British socialite, who was once Epstein's former lover, faces up to 65 years behind bars. She's 60 years old, which means she might be spending the rest of her life in prison.

During her trial, Epstein's former housekeeper took the stand and told the jury about the mundane tasks he was forced to do around the Palm Beach, Florida, home. The employee handbook exposing the twisted rules Epstein and Maxwell expected from their staff was also shown to the jury.

After nearly one week of deliberation, the jury of 6 men and 6 women convicted Maxwell of conspiracy to entice a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and sex trafficking minors.

Her sentencing will come at a later date.
