In a lawsuit obtained by Radar, Alan Dershowitz -- who gave interviews for the streaming giant's show -- says the editing was one-sided when it came to the allegations against him brought on by a woman who claims he partook in his client's sex trafficking ring.

Filthy Rich began streaming on Netflix in May 2020.

Dershowitz, who represented Epstein, was featured defending his now diseased client on the docuseries.

The lawyer also denied that he raped Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Giuffre is one of Epstein's most outspoken sex trafficking victims who claims Dershowitz -- along with Jeffrey and his alleged mistress Ghislaine Maxwell -- sexually exploited her when she was 17 and 18 years old.

Giuffre says Epstein forced her to have sex with Dershowitz several times in Florida, New York, New Mexico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Dershowitz -- who was once part of Donald Trump's legal team -- has sued Giuffre over her allegations and he's now bringing Netflix into it.

Epstein's former lawyer is suing Netflix, producers Leroy & Morton Productions, and Radical Media. He claims they produced “a deliberately one-sided narrative.”

He describes it as a “he said/she said" presentation when it comes to featuring the allegations Giuffre made about him on camera.

“It wasn’t a ‘he said/she said’ situation, however, given Professor Dershowitz’s totality of the evidence establishing he never had sex with Giuffre,” the complaint reads.

“To have presented that evidence in Filthy Rich, as had been promised, would have undercut the credibility of Brad Edwards, Sigrid McCawley and Giuffre — the very people whose interviewed comments Filthy Rich depended upon.”

Dershowitz takes issue with the editing.

He claims producers promised not to disparage him and said the team's editing choices appeared to give Giuffre's accusations credibility; however, Netflix disagrees.

A spokesperson for the streaming giant gave The Hollywood Reporter -- who first published the lawsuit -- a statement, saying, "Mr. Dershowitz’s lawsuit is without merit, and we will vigorously defend our partners and the series.”
