Lawyer suggests Ghislaine Maxwell will name names and won’t fight to keep names of “John Does” secret any more

According to a new report from The Blaze “Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has ended her fight to protect the identities of eight “John Does” named in a civil lawsuit filed by accuser Virginia Giuffre, according to court documents filed last week.”

Per the report the “John Does” — who were allegedly participants in Maxwell’s and late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking schemes — are now at the mercy of a New York judge as to whether their identities remain hidden from the public.

Maxwell’s attorney, Laura Menninger, said in a letter to Judge Loretta Preska dated Jan. 12 “Counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to inform the Court that she does not wish to further address those objections.”

Menninger noted that “each of the listed Does has counsel who have ably asserted their own respective privacy rights” and added that her client “therefore leaves it to this Court to conduct the appropriate review consistent with the Order and Protocol for Unsealing Decided Motions.”

Jonathan Turley tweeted in December “When you consider these five convictions for Maxwell, this picture becomes more glaring in the total absence of prosecution for the men on the other end of these flights.”
