Leslie Wexner, the billionaire founder of L Brands Inc., will be questioned under oath next month as part of a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims Jeffrey Epstein trafficked her for sex.

Wexner will sit for depositions in a legal dispute between Virginia Giuffre and Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, whom Giuffre claims was part of a group of powerful men to whom Epstein offered her for sex. She sued Dershowitz for defamation after he called her a liar, and he counter-sued, claiming Giuffre was making false claims about him as part of a plan to extort money from a far wealthier member of Epstein’s circle -- Wexner.
