Jeffrey Epstein list court filings unsealed New York: What to expect

The names of 150 people linked to Jeffrey Epstein will be revealed. The list includes high-profile figures from politics, business, and royalty.

The names of more than 150 individuals connected to the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are set to be revealed to the public in the near future. This revelation is expected to shed new light on the sex trafficking ring orchestrated by Epstein and his associate Ghislaine Maxwell. The disgraced millionaire was known to associate with prominent figures from the realms of politics, business, and royalty.

A judge has ordered that the court documents linked to a lawsuit involving Maxwell be unsealed. Among the 187 individuals named as John or Jane Doe in the court papers, their real names will now be disclosed. These identities are being revealed as part of a lawsuit against Maxwell, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for her involvement in Epstein's crimes.

The defamation lawsuit was brought by Virginia Giuffre, one of Maxwell's accusers, and the names of the individuals involved were previously kept under a court-ordered seal. However, a judge in New York recently ruled that these names could now be made public. Judge Loretta Preska noted that many of the individuals named in the lawsuit have already been publicly identified by the media or in Maxwell's criminal trial. She also stated that many others did not object to the release of the documents.

Some names on the list will remain sealed, including those of child victims, as stated by the judge in her ruling. It is also unclear how many names will emerge, as some individuals may have appeared more than once under different Doe numbers. The list is expected to include individuals accused of wrongdoing, accusers, and potential witnesses to the crimes, including employees of Epstein and individuals who visited his home or flew on his private plane.

Prince Andrew is expected to be among those named, with court filings including 40 documents of evidence from a woman who has made accusations against the prince. Buckingham Palace has previously denied the allegations, and the prince has also denied any wrongdoing. Former US President Bill Clinton is mentioned more than 50 times in the court documents, but there is no implication of any illegality. His team has stated that he cut ties with Epstein before the financier came under investigation.

Epstein, known for his connections to high-profile figures, died in jail in 2019 while awaiting federal sex-trafficking charges, which were ruled to be a suicide by the New York medical examiner. He had previously been convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor. He was accused of running a "vast network" of underage girls for sex.
