A tentative schedule has been set to roll out potentially thousands of pages of documents that could reveal more names of people allegedly involved in the late financier Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.
At a status conference in New York Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska set a timeline for review of an initial batch of more than 160 documents, which will be organized into categories and examined in the coming weeks.
The case involves a federal lawsuit filed in 2015 by one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Robert Giuffre, now 35. Giuffre’s lawyer, Sigrid McCawley, along with the Miami Herald and others, is seeking to unseal documents in the file that could reveal more about the role of Epstein’s former partner, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, in helping him run his operation.
