Appeals Court appears likely to unseal potentially explosive records in Jeffrey Epstein case

Source: NY Daily News

Judges on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals appeared open Wednesday to unsealing a massive trove of documents filed in a lawsuit linked to Jeffrey Epstein's alleged sex trafficking of underage women.

An unusual coalition of media organizations, a far-right conspiracy theorist and Epstein's own attorney Alan Dershowitz are seeking to have the record in a lawsuit against Epstein's alleged madame be made public.

Manhattan Federal Judge Robert Sweet ordered most documents in the contentious case be sealed. It was settled in 2017 before going to trial and the trove of papers -- including depositions of 29 individuals not named in the suit -- remain under wraps.

Only Ty Gee, an attorney for Ghislane Maxwell, who was accused of plying Epstein with underage women, argued during an hour-long hearing that the documents should remain secret. The suit against Maxwell was filed by Epstein accuser Viriginia Roberts Giuffre.

The reporter also wrote that the 3 judge panel seemed inclined to order a lower court to sift through the 167 documents to see which can be unsealed -- so I'm not holding my breath.
