(Reuters) - Two U.S. lawyers representing a woman who claims to have had sex while she was a minor with prominent U.S. criminal defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz filed a defamation lawsuit against him on Tuesday.

Former federal judge Paul Cassell and Florida plaintiffs attorney Bradley Edwards filed the lawsuit in a Florida circuit court, also accusing Dershowitz of initiating a public media assault on their reputation and character, according to court documents.
