Federal judge rules to unseal documents in 2015 case against Ghislaine Maxwell

Lawyers for United Kingdom socialite Ghislaine Maxwell said in a court appeal on Monday that they are seeking to keep provocaitive photographs and other sensitive evidence from the public ahead of her trial.

Last week, the judge in an already settled civil lawsuit against Maxwell from 2015 made a decision to unseal a majority of the documents in the dispute, despite her attorney's arguing that the sealed documents could "inappropriately influence potential witnesses or alleged victims".

Maxwell was interviewed by lawyers in April and July 2016 as part of a defamation lawsuit brought by Ms Roberts, who now goes by her married surname Giuffre.

Attorneys for the British socialite, who faces six counts of sex trafficking involving minors, wrote a letter to the court Monday urging the judge to stop the victims or their attorneys from releasing any information to the internet or elsewhere, including "nude, partially nude, or otherwise sexualized images, videos, or other depictions of individuals".

The case was eventually settled out of court, with Maxwell reportedly paying Roberts "millions", and all documents relating to it were put under lock and key.

The charges against Maxwell, which came nearly exactly a year after Epstein's arrest, also include two counts of perjury for comments she made during a legal deposition in April and July 2016 as part of the defamation case.

Maxwell, 58, was charged by federal prosecutors in early July for allegedly helping recruit, groom and ultimately sexually abuse minors as young as 14 as part of a years-long criminal enterprise with Epstein. It's believed the papers will also include emails and communications between Maxwell and Epstein from 2015, sent following Virginia Giuffre's accusations.
