Who helped the financier Jeffrey Epstein abuse scores of underage girls and young women?
Although Epstein was found dead in a New York City jail last summer, a list of names of wealthy and well-connected people who may have helped him commit his crimes lives on. The possible enablers could be named in a batch of sealed court documents filed in a civil lawsuit between one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, and his former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who is said to have procured him vulnerable, underage victims.
Now a federal judge has decided that some of those documents will remain sealed — for now.
At question are motions in the case that were never decided by U.S. District Court Judge Robert Sweet.
