SECRET documents pertaining to a civil lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, which was filed in 2015 by one of her alleged victims Virginia Giuffre, must be unsealed, a judge has ordered.
Judge Loretta Preska ruled five documents which are part of the seven hour, 418 page-long deposition Maxwell gave in the now-settled lawsuit, are to be made public.
The ruling was made during a court hearing last week, but Maxwell’s legal team was given a one week stay on the release in order to appeal the decision.
The judge upheld her decision however, and, according to Tuesday’s filing, the documents will be unsealed on Thursday, the NY Post reported.
Giuffre, who is one of Epstein and Maxwell’s most vocal accusers, had sued Maxwell for defamation, after the British socialite claimed Giuffre had made up the allegations of sexual abuse.
