Ghislaine Maxwell can’t prevent the release of a 2016 deposition she argued would prevent her from getting a fair trial on charges that she participated in a sex-trafficking scheme with former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein.
A deposition believed to show Ghislaine Maxwell perjuring herself by denying knowledge of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking empire must be unsealed, the Second Circuit ruled on Monday.
“We cannot conclude that the district court abused its discretion in ordering the unsealing of the deposition materials,” the three-judge panel wrote in an unsigned summary order.
Maxwell’s indictment is for now the only source of what has been disclosed from her deposition, showing her denying any knowledge of a pipeline that supplied Epstein with underage girls to perform massages — encounters that escalated to sexual assault.
