Jennifer Keller, working as part of a defense team that included attorneys Paul S. Meyer and Kay Rackauckas and Allison Shalinsky succeeded in obtaining a complete dismissal of all charges against Princess Meshael Alayban  of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, who was unjustly accused of human trafficking by allegedly forcing an employee in her Irvine home to work long hours for minimal pay.  In fact the accusation was a scam designed to get the Kenyan accuser permanent residence in the United States.  On September 20, 2013, the Orange County District Attorney asked the judge to toss out the felony charges against Alayban, who had been free on $5-million bail.  The D.A. had previously stated, “The law of our nation and California does not tolerate people who deprive or violate the liberty of another and obtain forced labor or services.”  On Friday he conceded, “The evidence does not support the charges.”  Alayban, the wife of Saudi Prince Abdulrahman bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz al Saud, the grandson of founding King Faud and nephew of King Abdullah, was completely exonerated of all charges.
