Ghislaine Maxwell files emergency appeal to block release of deposition on her sex life

July 31, 2020

Ghislaine Maxwell has filed an emergency appeal to block the release of a deposition on her sex life, saying it could destroy her ability to get a fair trial.

The longtime associate of Jeffrey Epstein filed the request one day after a US judge rejected her claim that her need for confidentiality outweighed the public's right to see the April 2016 document.

It is scheduled for release on August 3 unless the appeals court orders a stay or requests further arguments.

58-year-old Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and eventually abuse three girls from 1994 to 1997, and committing perjury by denying her involvement under oath.
