We could be in for some shocking new details in the already horrific Jeffery Epstein pedophilia case.
Lawyers appeared in Manhattan court last week to argue that thousands of pages related to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein — which could contain names of “hundreds” of people — should be made public.
The arguments came as part of Epstein’s “sex slave,” Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s settled defamation lawsuit against Epstein’s long-time “gal pal” Ghislaine Maxwell.
Thousands of court documents, in that case, were unsealed last month — but Giuffre’s lawyer and others are seeking to have thousands of others made public.
“At this point, there’s no agreement” over which documents should be made public, said Giuffre’s lawyer Sigrid McCawley. “Our proposal is to redact only Social Security numbers, the names of minor victims and any confidential medical information.”
According to reporting by the New York Post, the sealed documents contain nearly 30 never-before-seen depositions, but what could prove to most salacious info to come, it was also revealed that Epstein’s “little black book” is part of the trove.
The address book, first published by Gawker and excerpted by New York Magazine earlier this year, lists entries for Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Naomi Campbell and other high-powered people.
Maxwell’s attorney Jeffrey Pagliuca, meanwhile, is fighting against the potential bombshell disclosure.
“In some of these documents, there are literally a thousand people” who have not been publicly identified before, Pagliuca argued in Manhattan federal court.
Neither Giuffre nor Maxwell appeared at the hearing.
Giuffre, now 35, has claimed she was recruited by Maxwell as a teen, to be Epstein’s “sex slave.” She sued Maxwell, a British socialite, in 2015 after Maxwell called her a liar over her allegations. The case was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount in 2017 — on the eve of the trial — and the case file was sealed.
Epstein, 66, hanged himself just a day after the last trove of documents from the case was made public, revealing a tidal wave of sordid allegations against the financier and other high-powered men.
Dozens of women have accused Epstein of sexually abusing them as youngsters.
Five lawsuits have been filed against his estate in the wake of his death.
Epstein was arrested in July and charged with conspiracy and sex trafficking of children. While he was the only defendant named in the indictment, Federal Prosecutors say their investigation continues.
