Federal judge rules to unseal documents in 2015 case against Ghislaine Maxwell

Federal judge rules to unseal documents in 2015 case against Ghislaine Maxwell”

Prince Andrew has continued to remain in the news amid the ongoing Jeffrey Epstein investigation, but following the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell, some are indicating that the Duke of York "should be very concerned" about what the future could hold for him if certain documents are released.

She is the former girlfriend and confidant of the late, disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Maxwell's lawyers had previously claimed that information contained in the 80 documents, which run to hundreds of pages, would cause "embarrassment" as they fought to keep them secret.

The president was also asked whether he believes Maxwell will turn on powerful men, including Prince Andrew, who has faced public pressure to explain his relationship with Epstein and one of his accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Trump replied on Maxwell, "I don't know".

Among the records that are due to be released is thought to be a 418-page transcript of Maxwell's deposition - her only on-the-record account of her association with Epstein - which attorneys argue was given under an expectation of confidentiality that had been agreed to by both parties in the dispute.

Trump acknowledged that he has met Maxwell "numerous times" over the years, but said he hasn't been following her case. I guess they lived in Palm Beach. She is giving Maxwell's legal team a week to pursue an appeal to her decision but ordered the court to have the documents ready to be posted "within a week". The judge noted that neither had objected.

Loretta Preska, the USA district judge in Manhattan, granted Maxwell's lawyers one week to appeal against the decision.

Maxwell, 58, was charged by federal prosecutors in early July for allegedly helping recruit, groom and ultimately sexually abuse minors as young as 14 as part of a years-long criminal enterprise with Epstein. Other documents include emails and depositions by others, including Giuffre and anonymous women who also claim to have been abused by Epstein.

Epstein died in a jail cell last August while awaiting trial.
