An anonymous man terrified he's about to be named in court papers related to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell's alleged child sex trafficking ring is begging a judge not to release his name and identities of others accused—because it could tarnish their reputations,according to a surprise motion filed Tuesday.
一名匿名男子担心自己的名字会出现在与杰弗里·爱泼斯坦(Jeffrey Epstein)和吉斯莱·马克斯韦尔(Ghislaine Maxwell)所谓的儿童性交易团伙有关的法庭文件中，他恳求法官不要公布自己的名字和其他被告的身份，因为这可能会损害他们的名誉。
Lawyers for the John Doe filed the letter Tuesday—just a day before Epstein's self-proclaimed"sex slave"Virginia Roberts Giuffre is expected to join her lawyers in court as they continue efforts to unseal thousands of pages of documents related to her civil lawsuit against the dead pedophile's alleged procuress.
约翰·多伊的律师于周二提交了这封信件。一天后，爱泼斯坦自称为"性奴"的弗吉尼亚·罗伯茨·朱弗雷(Virginia Roberts Giuffre)将与她的律师一起出庭，他们将继续努力解密数千页文件，这些文件与爱泼斯坦对这名恋童癖嫌疑人的检察官提起的民事诉讼有关。
"As a non-party to these proceedings,Doe lacks specific knowledge about the contents of the Sealed Materials,"his lawyers wrote to Manhattan federal court judge Loretta Preska."But it is clear that these materials implicate the privacy and reputational interests of many persons other than the two primary parties to this action,Giuffre and Maxwell."
The letter goes on to say a prior judge overseeing the case summarized the still-secret documents as containing a"range of allegations of sexual acts involving Plaintiff and non-parties to this litigation,some famous,some not;the identities of non-parties who either allegedly engaged in sexual acts with Plaintiff or who allegedly facilitated such acts."
Doe's lawyers do not say in the papers if he is famous,or what accusations he expects to face in the court papers.His attorneys did not immediately return a message.
Efforts by Giuffre's lawyers to unseal a huge trove of documents have an anonymous man worried for his reputation.
Meanwhile,Giuffre's lawyer David Boies told The Post he expects Wednesday's hearing to determine a roadmap for how to deal with the remaining mountain-range of material.
与此同时，Giuffre 的律师 David Boies 告诉《华盛顿邮报》，他预计周三的听证会将决定如何处理剩余的山脉材料的路线图。
"It's a whole new set of documents,five to 10 times larger in volume than what has been released so far,"the lawyer said,referring to nearly 2,000 pages of case documents that were made public on Aug.9—just a day before Epstein's death by suicide at a lower Manhattan jail.
Bois said the still-sealed tranche contains depositions from never-before-heard witnesses,but declined to provide any names.
And he said that while his client is planning to attend,he doubts her legal adversary will appear.
"I don't think Maxwell will come out of hiding[for the proceeding],"Boies offered.The 57-year-old has been virtually absent from the public eye—or New York City social scene—in recent years.
The now-35-year-old accuser Giuffre says she was just a teen when was recruited for sex by Maxwell—daughter of publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell—at Mar-a-Lago resort and sued for defamation when the British socialite called her a liar.The suit was settled out of court in 2015.
现年35岁的原告朱弗雷表示，当她在 Mar-a-Lago 度假村被出版大亨罗伯特•马克斯韦尔(Robert Maxwell)的女儿马克斯韦尔招妓时，还只是个十几岁的孩子。当这位英国社交名媛称她为骗子时，朱弗雷起诉她诽谤。这起诉讼在2015年庭外和解。
While Giuffre has previously testified she was loaned out to Prince Andrew for sex,it's not clear if his deposition is among the still-secret records.
Giuffre claims she was also ordered to sleep with a rotating door of high-powered men,including the late MIT professor Marvin Minsky,former Maine Sen.George Mitchell,ex-New Mexico Gov.Bill Richardson,money manager Glenn Dubin and lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
朱弗雷称，她还被要求与一群权势人物同床共枕，其中包括已故麻省理工学院教授马文·明斯基(Marvin Minsky)、前缅因州参议员乔治·米切尔(George Mitchell)、前新墨西哥州州长比尔·理查森(Bill Richardson)、资金经理格伦·杜宾(Glenn Dubin)。

The men or their representatives have all adamantly denied the allegations.
Epstein's criminal case was officially dismissed last week,following an emotional hearing in which Manhattan federal court judge Richard Berman heard in-person statements from 16 women who say they were victimized by the financier.
The 66-year-old convicted pedophile was arrested in July,and was the only defendant named in an indictment charging him with conspiracy and sex trafficking of minors.
Federal prosecutors have said their investigation continues.
Lawyers for Maxwell did not immediately return a message.
