According to the Daily Mail, the final batch of court documents containing ‘salacious’ allegations related to the list of 167 of Jeffrey Epstein’s associates, victims, and employees, is about to be unsealed.
The documents come from a material that was filed by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts, now known by her married name of Virginia Giuffre, in a defamation case in 2015 against Ghislaine Maxwell, who is now serving time for sex trafficking with Epstein. The material was settled in 2017, and the material has been released in batches ever since, pursuant to media requests.
The documents include names of alleged perpetrators or people accused of “serious wrongdoing” as well as victims, associates, attorneys, and prosecutors.
We reported on the continuing releases in November and noted at that time that one of the names released at that time was the billionaire hotel magnate Thomas Pritzker, who is the chairman of Hyatt Hotels and a cousin of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.
Right now those people are listed as “John” or “Jane” “Doe” with a number after it. But the names will come out once the documents are released.
Among the people on the list are Prince Andrew and law professor Alan Dershowitz. Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s victims accused Dershowitz of being a perpetrator but then later admitted she may have made a mistake in identifying him. He always maintained his innocence.
At least one of the people on the list to be revealed is a public figure.
J. Doe 18 is an assistant state attorney who has been previously identified in a police report.
The individual appears to have been involved in the charges brought against Epstein in 2007 under which he served just 15 months in jail for soliciting a minor for prostitution as part of a sweetheart deal with state prosecutors in Florida.
J. Doe 21 is described as a ‘public figure’ by Maxwell’s lawyers who objected to their name becoming public because of the only known reference to them being in Epstein’s ‘Black Book’ of contacts.
Roberts’s lawyers point out that the person made no objection to their name being released.
J. Doe 23 is deceased but was accused of ‘serious wrongdoing’, the documents state. They are not identified by name.
Maxwell’s lawyers strongly objected to the release of any material related to J. Doe 36, who is described as an ‘Epstein affiliate’.
Her attorneys said that during Maxwell’s trial there was just one reference to the individual flying on Epstein’s private jet.
The document states: ‘The items the plaintiff (Roberts) hopes to unseal contain a number of salacious, unproven allegations’.
There were more alleged perpetrators or people accused of serious wrongdoing in the documents.
J. Does 59, 113, 132 and 134 are also alleged to have engaged in ‘serious wrongdoing’. While Does 59 and 132 are dead, the other two are alive.
No other details are given about who they are.
Another of the individuals, J. Doe 117, is a former Assistant US Attorney, which could give further insight into the circumstances of Epstein’s plea deal. [….]
J. Doe 132 is described as an ‘alleged Epstein affiliate’ and ‘alleged perpetrator’.
Allegations about this person have been ‘widely reported in the media’ and they are now deceased, the court document states.
J. Doe 148 is described as an ‘alleged perpetrator’, ‘alleged Epstein affiliate’ and ‘alleged witness’ who is still alive.
Hopefully, this is the start of some serious movement to hold the people who were involved in the wrongdoing accountable.
