Ghislaine Maxwell Civil Case Will Be Unsealed on Monday


More transparency is imminent in the long-settled defamation lawsuit against accused sex-trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, with a federal judge ordering the release of a deposition on Monday featuring the testimony of an unidentified “Doe 1.”

“Having received no objection from Does 1 or 2, the transcript of Doe 1’s deposition and materials quoting or disclosing information from that transcript… shall be posted on the public docket no later than Monday, November 23rd, at 9:00 a.m.,” U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska wrote in a 5-page order on Friday.

Neither of the “Does” has been identified, but both have been given ample opportunity to object to the release of information that the Second Circuit tasked Judge Preska with unsealing back in August 2019.

That ordered followed watershed publication of the Miami Herald’s series “Perversion of Justice,” which renewed attention to dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s 2008 plea deal and has been widely credited for his prosecution and Maxwell’s.

Following the exposé, the Herald went to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to unseal broad swaths of the court record in alleged victim Virginia Giuffre’s lawsuit claiming Maxwell defamed her by denying that she made her Epstein’s “sex slave.” Giuffre’s settlement with Maxwell kept much of the court record under wraps for years, but a Second Circuit ruling in the Herald’s favor has led to increasing sunlight on the case ever since.
