Epstein Docs Include Big Names: Prince Andrew, Dershowitz, Ex-FBI Director Freeh

by Madeleine Hubbard and Ben Whedon


The Southern District of New York on Wednesday published a batch of 40 documents related to a defamation case filed by Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence for sex crimes.

The case was settled in 2017, and Epstein was found dead in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019, but the case is making headlines again after media outlets sued to have documents related to it published.

Among the materials was a list of nearly 80 individuals whom Giuffre’s attorneys identified as being “likely to have discoverable information relevant” to the case. Among those Giuffre’s attorneys identified were high-profile figures such as Harvard Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, former FBI Director Louis Freeh, and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.

Media reports ahead of the release expected major figures such as former President Bill Clinton to be named in the document dump. The former president featured in multiple documents, including a deposition in which the deposed fielded questions surrounding Clinton’s relationship with Epstein.

Initial reports that the document release would be delayed were inaccurate and the Southern District of New York began publishing court files Wednesday pursuant to a court order from federal Judge Loretta Preska last month. The confusion stemmed from Preska granting a 30-day delay to a single individual mentioned in the documents due to claims she faced “risks of physical harm” from her name being released.
