A cache of documents in a civil litigation against British socialite Ghislin Maxwell was removed on Thursday night.
The documents include early 2015 correspondence with her longtime confidant Jeffrey Epstein, disgraced financier and convicted sex offender.
Federal authorities arrested Maxwell on July 2, accusing him of allegedly participating in Epstein’s sexual trafficking. Maxwell, the daughter of the late Baron Robert Maxwell, pleaded not guilty on 14 July.
He is being held in jail pending trial, scheduled for next July.
Maxwell’s lawyers in the civil suit argued for keeping these records sealed, first maintaining that “this plea of arguments [attempts] To force Ms. Maxwell to answer sharp questions about her sex life ”. The documents, he argued, are “highly personal, confidential and subject to considerable abuse by the media”.
Manhattan federal court Judge Loretta Presca ruled on July 23, however, stating: “The court found that the identification of retaliatory interests failed to infer public access estimates.”
The documents related to Maxwell’s statement have not yet been released, as his lawyers are appealing for his uncertainty.
The document in question paper from the 2015 civil action against Maxwell of Epstein accused Virginia Giffrey.
Guffrey has claimed that Maxwell lured him at the age of 15 under the guise of offering a masseur to Epstein’s class. Maxwell met Giffre at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in South Florida, where the then-teen was working as a locker-room attendant.
In the suit, which was later settled, Giuffre claimed that Maxwell had defamed him by accusing Epstein and Maxwell of sexually assaulting her.
An extensive collection of documents in the lawsuit was also removed last August. He made both bombing claims, and denied that world leaders attended Epstein’s sex ring. These feelings were revealed shortly after Epstein’s arrest last July. Epstein killed himself in prison last August.
