BREAKING: The Second Circuit issues its mandate to unseal a large tranche of Jeffrey Epstein-related docs, as an old docket becomes public for the first time.

Developing, and will provide details and documents as they emerge.

Background @CourthouseNews courthousenews.com/court-orders-s…
@CourthouseNews More than a dozen docket entries have hit the appellate court's record in this case already within the last 10 minutes.

(Second Circuit case number 18-2868.)
@CourthouseNews Just an example from the table of contents of a single docket:

A filing by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre from Jan. 2017.
@CourthouseNews Epstein's Amazon orders included the following books: "SM 101: A Realistic Introduction," "SlaveCraft: Roadmaps for Erotic Servitude," "A Workbook for Erotic Slaves and Their Owners," Giuffre alleges.

A photo of the receipt is included in the motion.
@CourthouseNews Giuffre's attorney Sigrid McCawley slams Ghislaine Maxwell for conflating the allegations against her with Virginia Giuffre's contested allegations against Alan Dershowitz:

"Call this the 'yes-I’m-a-sex-trafficker-but-she-was-not-trafficked-to-the-professor' defense."
@CourthouseNews Uploading files to share right now.

Among the trove of more than a dozen, there is the formerly-sealed 76-page ruling in the case Giuffre v. Maxwell, the case brought by one of Epstein's accusers interviewed in @JKJournalist's watershed series "Perversion of Justice."
@CourthouseNews From that ruling:

"Giuffre also alleged she was 'forced' to have sex with Dershowitz, 'model scout' Jean Luc Brunel, and 'many other powerful men, inc. numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known Prime Minister..."
@CourthouseNews Note:

What's been released today isn't the entire tranche that the Second Circuit ordered unsealed last month. The majority of the unsealing will be performed by U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska on remand, but make no mistake, this is quite a flood today.
@CourthouseNews Here is the late U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet's previously sealed opinion from March 2017.

He died earlier this year, and this ruling denied Ghislaine Maxwell's motion for summary judgment.

@CourthouseNews Now here's another document.
@CourthouseNews This appears to be the email that Alan Dershowitz asserts exonerates him from the allegations.

Mail on Sunday reporter apparently writing to Giuffre about Dershowitz: "We all suspect Alan is a pedo and tho no proof of that, you probably met him when he was hanging [o]ut w JE."
@CourthouseNews Here is that document of exhibits where the back-and-forth between Giuffre and the reporter on Dershowitz continues.

@CourthouseNews This unsealed document names names.

@CourthouseNews 🚨This 2016 deposition shows Epstein's accuser Virginia Giuffre being grilled about statements that a Mail on Sunday reporter made about her alleged interactions with Trump and Clinton.

Giuffre clarifies inaccuracies in those statements.

Doc (p. 19 on): documentcloud.org/documents/6250…
@CourthouseNews Though this isn't a new allegation, Epstein accuser Johanna Sjoberg's allegations against Prince Andrew are detailed in this brief. Giuffre alleges she was "lent out" to the prince too.

See page 14. courthousenews.com/wp-content/upl…
@CourthouseNews Another exhibit: Passage from a deposition from Epstein's ex-house manager John Alessi, marked in this 883-page batch of exhibits as "filed under seal."

May take awhile to upload a file of this size.
@CourthouseNews Jeffrey Epstein's deposition.

"Fifth." "Fifth." "Fifth." "Fifth."

It goes on like this for a few pages.

Starting page 44 of this doc. @CourthouseNews documentcloud.org/documents/6250…
@CourthouseNews Giuffre's deposition starts on page 73, narrating her time working at Mar-a-Lago, recruitment by Maxwell, and new accusations against the politically and financially powerful.

@CourthouseNews Passage from Giuffre's deposition on documentary evidence of powerful men to whom she says she was trafficked.

Q: Where are your notes?
A: I burned them.
@CourthouseNews A former Palm Beach detective testified in his deposition that he found victims' names in trash pulls from Epstein's house.
@CourthouseNews "She was shaking uncontrollably."

Gut-wrenching testimony by Rinaldo Rizzo, described by Giuffre's counsel as the house manager for one of Maxwell's close friends, Eva Dubin.

Here, Rizzo describes a conversation with a 15-year-old Swedish girl. p. 237 on documentcloud.org/documents/6250…

@CourthouseNews Deposition of Epstein accuser Johanna Sjoberg:

"He explained to me that, in his opinion, he needed to have three orgasms a day. It was biological, like eating."
@CourthouseNews Sjoberg on Maxwell:

Q. Did she ever refer to herself as a mother?
A. Yes, like a mother hen.
