Ghislaine Maxwell is not a happy camper in lockup. She has been, and her lawyers have been complaining of how she's had to wear paper clothing, her cell searched several times a day, unannounced moves from location to location within lockup, body scans. And according to Foxnews' Nancy Grace, Maxwell is having trouble cutting a deal. And now she's been taken off suicide watch (on the surface).
August 12th, Federal Judge denied Maxwell and her lawyers request to delay the unsealing of potentially explosive additional court documents related to her dealings with Epstein. Maxwell's attorneys yesterday requested a 3 week delay in the unsealing of the documents "over critical new information" that her lawyers are saying could seriously affect her ability to obtain a fair trial.
The Federal Judge in a two page order denied Maxwell's request "knowing that her ipse dixit does not provide compelling grounds for relief". The court saw no reasonable basis to impose a stay.
The documents in question come from a 2016 deposition by one of Epstein's victims, Virginia Giuffre who said that Epstein kept her as a "sex slave" with Maxwell's help. J
The court will begin hearing oral arguments beginning September 22, with the criminal trial set for July of next year.
U.S. Prosecutors are expected to respond today to Maxwell's attorneys request to move Maxwell to the prison's general population.
