Yesterday a judge ruled that evidence would be unsealed today in a long-settled civil suit involving Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein, one of their victims, and other unnamed individuals. In the process, the judge rejected Maxwell’s argument that the evidence should remain sealed. But now there’s a new twist.
Now the judge has agreed to delay the release of the evidence so that Ghislaine Maxwell can file an appeal, meaning we won’t see anything unsealed today. However, the evidence will be unsealed on Monday if the appeals court hasn’t jumped in by then.
So short of an appeals judge granting an emergency injunction tomorrow or over the weekend, we’ll see the evidence on Monday after all. Meanwhile, Ghislaine Maxwell continues to rot in jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
