Judge Loretta Preska ordered that materials connected to Virginia Giuffre's defamation case against Epstein's former fixer Ghislaine Maxwell be released.

Around 177 individuals, previously referred to as John Doe or Jane Doe, will be made public.

However, several of Epstein's victims named in the documents will be able to remain anonymous, as making their identities public would “disclose sensitive information regarding an alleged minor victim of sexual abuse who has not spoken publicly and who has maintained his or her privacy.”

The order will take effect from January 1, 2024. The individuals concerned have 14 days to appeal.

Maxwell, who is currently in prison, was sued by Ms Giuffre in 2015 after the convicted child sex trafficker called her a liar when claiming she had been sexually abused as a minor.
