Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre appear in court to hash out plan to unseal documents that name MORE high profile individuals connected to Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring

by Lousie Boyle, Daily Mail:

  • Neither Ghislaine Maxwell nor Virginia Giuffre appeared at hearing in Manhattan court today to work out the release of documents in the defamation case
  • Giuffre’s filed a defamation suit against Maxwell in 2015 after Epstein’s procurer called her a liar
  • When asked about Maxwell’s whereabouts the plaintiff’s lawyers admitted they have no idea where she is in hiding
  • Judge Loretta Preska urged the lawyers to streamline the review and set a timetable for the release
  • Maxwell’s attorney, Laura Menninger, said that some of the ‘non-parties’ are ‘in positions of means with counsel’ 
  • But others ‘live out of the country or in remote places… without counsel’ and so would need a fair chance to file their objections via letter
  • Yesterday Virginia Giuffre, Roberts, 36, posted photos  of her at a celebrity party
  • She claims images are of her at Naomi Campbell’s 31st birthday bash in St Tropez
  • No evidence Campbell or anyone else knew of the abuse or Epstein’s behavior
