Daily Mail [UK] –
Judge Loretta Preska ruled Thursday that dozens of documents about Ghislaine Maxwell’s personal affairs should be unsealed in the next two weeks
“…The judge also ruled that documents relating to a request from Giuffre for email accounts that Maxwell allegedly kept secret from the court should also be made public.”
“A US federal appeals court rejected an attempt by Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, to block the release of a massive deposition she gave for a 2016 civil suit filed by one of Epstein’s accusers.”
. . . “This is good news for not just the victims of Epstein, but for victims everywhere,” Spencer Kuvin, a lawyer who has represented several of Epstein’s alleged victims, told the Herald. “The Courts should not be a party to the long history of Epstein and his co-conspirator’s attempts to avoid public scrutiny for their actions. Everyone who was a part of the Epstein sex ring should be concerned.”
“Attorneys for alleged Jeffrey Epstein “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre were ordered Wednesday to destroy evidence from her case against Ghislaine Maxwell — as lawyer Alan Dershowitz was also denied access to the potentially explosive information.
Manhattan federal court Judge Loretta Preska said she was “troubled” to learn during oral arguments last week that Giuffre’s lawyers, from the firm of Cooper & Kirk, had been given sealed records from her since-settled suit against Maxwell . . . “
” . . . Preska also rejected a request by Dershowitz for access to “all filings and discovery materials, including third-party discovery” from the Maxwell case, saying that “it is not a targeted strike that Mr. Dershowitz proposes, but a carpet bombing.” (more)

A nasty legal battle between Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre and Alan Dershowitz broadened Tuesday, as attorneys for the retired Harvard Law professor said they’d call Victoria’s Secret CEO Leslie Wexner to the stand.
““Every time (Dershowitz) goes on a show and defames my client he is responsible for that defamation,” Giuffre attorney Sigrid McCawley said.
A trial date for the case has not been set.”
