I haven't been able to find the 33 page opinion online anywhere.
Thanks for the update.

I have nothing to add besides pointing out that the 33 page opinion can be found at the link you posted.
It's a grey, boring looking box with 3 possibilites to view (about at 1/3 of the article): https://amp.miamiherald.com/news/state/ ... ssion=true

Odd...there are still no links/boxes to click on when I pull up the article.

I did find the pdf of the case elsewhere if anyone else is having the same problem:

Still not a trace on Katie Johnson, who accused both Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein of raping her when she was only 13, then disappeared after saying that her life was threatened, while her attorney dropped the lawsuit...

US District Judge Kenneth Marra has allowed Jeffrey Epstein’s attorneys more time to negotiate with the victims’ laywers; calling a new “deadline” of 10 May (the first “deadline” was half March): https://www.citynews1130.com/2019/03/14 ... ghts-case/

More interesting is that Virginia Roberts Giuffre has filed a defamation lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein’s friend, lawyer and co-conspirator Alan Dershowitz, with some affidavits for evidence.

Dershowitz has denied that he ever saw underage girls when he visited Epstein’s various homes in Palm Beach, New Mexico and New York. But Maria Farmer saw Dershowitz at the NY mansion going upstairs when there were girls younger than 18 present upstairs.

Epstein´s butler Alfredo Rodriguez has also said that he saw Dershowitz in the presence of young girls at Epstein’s waterfront mansion. Rodriguez was sentenced to a longer prison sentence than Epstein after he was prosecuted by the FBI for “obstructing justice” for trying to sell Epstein’s “little black book’’ to the press. As he died in prison this was arguably a “life sentence”...

Sarah Ransome was introduced to Epstein when she was 22 years old and living in New York. She spent time at Epstein’s mansion and was “lent out’’ to his friends for sex, including Dershowitz: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation ... 77874.html

Here´s the 16 April court paper; see some interesting excerpts:
56. Both to conceal Dershowitz’s relationship with Epstein, and to discredit Roberts, Dershowitz has repeatedly asserted that he was only at Epstein’s residence once in Palm Beach, and that was with his family. However, Juan Alessi, a long time Epstein household employee, has confirmed that Dershowitz visited Epstein “pretty often. I would say at least four or five times a year” and that he would “typically” stay two or three days. Similarly, Alfredo Rodriguez who worked for Epstein approximately only six months confirmed that during that six months period Dershowitz visited Epstein twice.
59. Ms. Farmer asserts that “Alan Dershowitz was an individual who came to visit Epstein at his New York mansion a number of times when I was working for Epstein. Dershowitz was very comfortable at the home and would come in and walk upstairs. On a number of occasions I witnessed Dershowitz at the NY mansion going upstairs at the same time there were young girls under the age of 18 who were present upstairs in the house” (Exhibit 12, ¶4).
80. Dershowitz also lied to attempt to deflect Sarah Ransome’s revelations about him.Ms. Ransome revealed that during the time she was a victim of Epstein’s sex trafficking, Epstein’s arranged for his lawyer, Dershowitz, to also represent Ms. Ransome. Ms. Ransome also described how, during the time Dershowitz was her lawyer, Epstein lent her out to Dershowitz for sex. (Exhibit 14).

81. Dershowitz asserted that he never had sex with Ms. Ransome, that he never represented Ms. Ransome, that he did not even know Ms. Ransome, and that Ms. Ransome’s statements about him were fabricated by Ms. Roberts’ lawyer in retaliation for a bar complaint that Dershowitz had filed against that lawyer (Exhibit 16).

The affidavit by Maria Farmer is the most interesting new evidence. Farmer frequently saw “school-age girls’’ come into Epstein’s mansion and go upstairs.
Farmer was sexually assaulted, as an adult, by Epstein and Maxwell at Leslie Wexner´s estate. When she tried to leave, Wexner’s security staff refused to let her go.
Farmer reported the assault to New York police and the FBI in 1996 that refused to press charges. Afterwards she was repeatedly threatened by Epstein and Maxwell.

Epstein also took her younger sister, then 15, for sexual encounters with himself and Ghislaine Maxwell. Farmer only learned later what had happened to her sister.
He then flew the 15-year-old to his ranch in New Mexico, promising her mother that he would help with her education and later to Thailand to study.

Here’s the full affidavit by Maria Farmer, 12 april 2019: https://www.scribd.com/document/4066133 ... ria-Farmer

Here’s the affidavit by Sarah Ransome that doesn’t name child abuse, but does include sex with Alan Dershowitz, Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, 8 April 2019: https://www.scribd.com/document/4066155 ... ah-Ransome

Virginia Roberts has earlier likewise sued Ghislaine Maxwell for slander. The case was reportedly settled for millions, with the court documents sealed.

In a clear publicity stunt, Alan Dershowitz claims that he wants to have the court documents on Jeffrey Epstein released to the public: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/ ... 22729.html

Jen-Lisa Jones was molested by Epstein when she was only 14.
Wild was also 14 years old when she met Epstein: https://www.vox.com/2018/12/3/18116351/ ... ary-acosta

Michelle Licata was 16 when Epstein sexually assaulted her: https://www.newsweek.com/jeffrey-epstei ... or-1339974

Ghislaine Maxwell’s court documents unsealed

Post by Firestarter » Sat Jul 06, 2019 2:33 pm

On Wednesday, a federal appeals court ordered the release of court documents from the defamation lawsuit of Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Virginia Maxwell (who ran the child sex ring with Jeffrey Epstein) that was filed in September 2015, and settled (reportedly for millions) in May 2017, just before the start of the trial.
The appellate court ordered the immediate disclosure of the summary judgment record and also to disclose the 167 documents filed in the case (these have to be reviewed before they are released to the public).

See the conclusion from the court’s decision:
To summarize, we hold as follows:
(1) Materials submitted in connection with a motion for summary judgment are subject to a strong presumption of public access.
(2) The summary judgment record at issue will be unsealed upon issuance of our mandate, subject to minimal redactions.
(3) Materials submitted in connection with, and relevant to, discovery motions, motions in limine, and other non‐dispositive motions are subject to a lesser—but still substantial— presumption of public access.
(4) The District Court is directed to review the remaining sealed materials individually and unseal those materials as appropriate.
(5) District courts should exercise the full range of their substantial powers to ensure their files do not become vehicles for defamation.

For the foregoing reasons, we VACATE the orders of the District Court entered on November 2, 2016, May 3, 2017, and August 27, 2018, ORDER the unsealing of the summary judgment record as described herein, and REMAND the cause to the District Court for particularized review of the remaining materials.
In undertaking this task, the District Court may be well‐served by ordering the parties to submit to the Court unredacted, electronic copies of the remaining sealed materials, as well as specific, proposed redactions. The District Court may also order the parties to identify and notify additional parties whose privacy interests would likely be implicated by disclosure of these materials.
In the interests of judicial economy, any future appeal in this matter shall be referred to this panel.

In a strange twist, on Saturday Jeffrey Epstein was suddenly arrested and charged with sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005. He could potentially be locked up for a maximum of 45 years.
On Monday, Epstein will appear in court in New York.

Attorney for Epstein victims Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Sarah Ransome, David Boies, said:
It’s been a long time coming—it’s been too long coming. It is an important step towards getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.
We hope that prosecutors will not stop with Mr. Epstein because there were many other people who participated with him and made the sex trafficking possible.

Michelle Licata, who was molested by Epstein when she was 16 years old responded to this news: “Oh my God. Finally, finally, finally! Justice!

Ghislaine Maxwell, Fergie’s friend, who ran the paedophile ring with Epstein, still hasn’t been charged: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/ ... 74872.html

Here’s the thing I don’t understand about this charade. Because of the 2007 non-prosecution agreement, Jeffrey Epstein is immune from prosecution for what he did from 2002 to 2005 (and his co-conspirators, including Ghislaine Maxwell and Alan Dershowitz)...
It's claimed that the non-prosecution agreement only involved "state crimes" but he's now prosecuted under federal law. If this is true, the whole non-prosecution agreement would have been worthless in the first place!
Trump’s Secretary of Labour Alexander Acosta violated federal law, so should be prosecuted; but I guess this won’t happen.

Bill Clinton has claimed that he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane 4 times in total (instead of the 26 reported by the “reputable” Fox News).
Bill Clinton has also denied that he ever was on Epstein’s private island in the Virgin Island (which was claimed by Virginia Roberts).

In September 2002, Clinton flew with Epstein on a week-long tour through Africa, visiting South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, and Mozambique.

Jeffrey Epstein pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of sex trafficking and paying girls as young as 14 for sex acts.
Epstein will remain in jail until at least 15 July, when a bail hearing is scheduled: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... rimes.html

Here are 839 pages on the Jeffrey Epstein deposition (most of it worthless). A lot of suspects, witnesses, including Epstein, refusing to answer questions over and over again (pleading the fifth).
On page 73, 74, Mark Epstein (Jeffrey’s brother) details flying on Jeffrey’s private plane with Jeffrey’s good friend Donald Trump.

On pages 767-791, are the testimonies of victims – 12 to 17 years old when molested: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents ... erpts.html

Epstein’s houseman Juan Alessi has testified that Trump would regularly come for dinner at Epstein’s home — but that Trump “never sat at the table” but instead ate “with me in the kitchen”: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/al ... eins-house

At Jeffrey Epstein’s house the walls where filled with nude women, including underage girls!

I couldn’t find Alessi’s 2009 sworn deposition (the following link gives an “access forbidden” message https://www.documentcloud.org/documents ... 19/a263755)...

Trump’s Attorney General William Barr didn’t recuse himself from the Jeffrey Epstein case, claiming that he considered this because he once worked for a law firm that represented Epstein.
There’s a more interesting link from William Barr’s father, Donald Barr, to Epstein.

In 1973, Donald Barr as headmaster of Manhattan’s Dalton School, hired Epstein as a calculus and physics teacher even though he didn’t even have a college degree and was only 20 years of age.

How did Epstein make Bear Stearns’ chairman, Alan “Ace” Greenberg, whose son attended the Dalton School, make him hire him as an options trader?
This is what got Epstein started in the world of high finance, reportedly becoming a billionaire in the process (this is denied by some media outlets): https://hillreporter.com/the-ties-that- ... rump-34107

One of the best-known stories about Jeffrey Epstein, years before he pleaded guilty in the sweetheart deal in which Alex Acosta was involved, is the 2003 Vanity Fair article “The Talented Mr. Epstein”, written by Vicky Ward.
I don´t think that it helps her credibility that she waited 16 years, but now Ward claims that at the time she wanted to report on Epstein molesting 2 young sisters (one of them underage when it happened), who had spoken on the record. This was prevented by the editor of Vanity Fair - Graydon Carter.
AMY GOODMAN: Can you describe what happened to you when you wrote this piece? You spoke to Jeffrey Epstein.
VICKY WARD: Oh, multiple times, multiple times. He wheeled out, you know, all these important bankers and academics and financiers to talk to me. And he would call me all the time, but he would threaten me. He would talk, and then he would say, “You know, Vicky, if I don’t like this piece, you know, something is going to happen to your unborn children.” You know, and that way, he would sort of say it, you know, lightly, but I went to the magazine’s general counsel at the time.
VICKY WARD: Yes. And two sisters who—
VICKY WARD: —who alleged that Jeffrey Epstein had assaulted each of them separately, on separate occasions, but one of them at the time was underage. And it was a classic story of two young women who did not come from a particularly rich family. The younger one wanted to go to an Ivy League school. Jeffrey offered to pay for this, but only if he got to know this young woman better. And he was very plausible. He had his girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who—very charming, well educated, British sort of socialite around New York—
VICKY WARD: Yes, he came in. I had had no—I was not told about this. He came in. He had a private meeting with the magazine’s then-editor, Graydon Carter, after which I was informed that Graydon believed Jeffrey Epstein. I was told that Jeffrey Epstein had told Graydon that he was, quote-unquote, “sensitive about the women.” And so they would be pulled from the story. So it would now be a business story. And—
AMY GOODMAN: About what? A business story.
VICKY WARD: Well, it was a business story that explained that Jeffrey Epstein was not who he claimed to be in his professional life. But the very powerful, awful stories of what happened to these women got taken out.
https://www.democracynow.org/2019/7/8/j ... _friend_of
(archived here: http://archive.is/OeaS0)

The following is one of those rare stories with so much information that I have difficulties getting the whole picture.

In 1981, Jeffrey Epstein left Bear Stearns in the middle of insider trading accusations involving a tender offer placed by Seagram Company Ltd. (owned by none other than the NXIVM-affiliated Edgar Bronfman Sr.) for St. Joe Minerals Corp.
Epstein reportedly became an informer to the investigation that got several Italian and Swiss investors sentenced for insider trading, including Italian financier Giuseppe Tome.

In 1987, Epstein was hired by Steven Jude Hoffenberg; Epstein’s first assignments included bids to take over Pan American World Airways in 1987 and Emery Air Freight Corp in 1988.
Hoffenberg was a tenant in the Trump Tower.

In 1994, Hoffenberg was arrested on charges of securities fraud. In 1995, Hoffenberg pleaded guilty to one of the largest Ponzi schemes in history through Towers Financial Corporation to defraud investors of more than $450 million.
Hoffenberg paid a $60 million settlement to the SEC, a $1 million fine, and spent 18 years in prison.

Epstein wasn´t accused (like in the Bear Stearns insider trading case).

In February 2016, WHAM Inc. (of Hoffenberg and Theodore Fotsis) notes:
it is contemplated that the Financial Trust Company (...) and Jeffrey Epstein (...) shall provide a minimum of one billion (...) dollars in assets to the Company.

It is not clear how Fotsis and Hoffenberg developed the plan for WHAM Inc. to acquire Hoffenberg’s businesses, get $1 billion from Epstein, or launch the Trump Super PAC in June.

In May 2016, Hoffenberg filed a lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein accusing him of helping Hoffenberg defraud investors.
The lawsuit was later withdrawn with prejudice.

In June 2016, Steven Hoffenberg launched the “Get Our Jobs Back Inc.” Super PAC to get Donald Trump elected.
That same month the Super PAC noted a $50,000,000 contribution from Statware, Inc. for Digital Media Marketing, Revenue Sharing, on behalf of “Trump J. Donald”. It is not clear how Statware´s CEO Richard LePoutre met Steven Hoffenberg or why he made a $50 million in-kind contribution.
The Super PAC closed on 8 November 2016.

Also in June 2016, WHAM, Inc. noted two contracts “for performance based consulting services with third‐parties” with future revenue of $113,000,000.
None of WHAM Inc.’s financial reports after June 2016 referred to this 113 million dollar.

In April 2016, WHAM Inc. used a new corporate website whaminc.us. This domain was hosted at the French company OVH SAS. In early 2017, OVH SAS was reported as being involved in hacking by the Russian state-sponsored Fancy Bear.
By early 2018, it appears that Theodore Fotsis had no remaining connection to WHAM Inc.
The WHAM Inc. name changed several times (to BERTIH Holdings and then to Syntrol).

An interesting change came in January 2018, when Pavel Birjukovskis of Latvia took ownership of the whaminc.us domain and hosted by the ITL company since. ITL, based in Ukraine, has been prominent in the Trump-Russia story and was reportedly the host for the Blacktivist.info website that also leased servers to Greenfloid LLC, a Florida registered company. Greenfloid LLC ran the sites blackmattersus.com and DoNotShoot.Us. In 2017, these were reported as troll sites.
In September 2016, ITL also hosted Whoiswhos.me — controlled and used by the Russian Internet Research Agency that hosted malware.
More recently, ITL was linked to the VPNFilter hacking campaign, which was again linked to the Russian state hacking group Fancy Bear.

In another one of those strange coincidences, the late Robert Maxwell (father of Ghislaine Maxwell) has been closely affiliated with Robert Fraser & Partners LLP.
None other than Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix once worked for Robert Fraser & Partners.
In 2003, Robert Fraser & Partners was incorporated by John Michael Bottomley, who from 2005 to 2014 served as a director for the SCL Group (Cambridge Analytica’s parent company): https://medium.com/@wsiegelman/plaintif ... a734847ddc

While I haven’t seen any new information since Alexander Acosta became Secretary of Labor, he has resigned?!?

Friday, Acosta announced his resignation standing next to President Donald Trump at the White House lawn over the “sweetheart deal” with the well-connected paedophile Jeffrey Epstein that also got the other child molesters in the sex ring off the hook: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48967419

Here’s another victim of Epstein (with dollar signs in her eyes!) that recently told how Epstein raped her, when she was only 15 years old.

The elite, including Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, can always count on crooked lawyers to cover-up their many scandals...

The lead prosecutor of Jeffrey Epstein is Geoffrey Berman.
From 2006-2017, Berman was a law partner, with Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, at Greenberg Traurig.

Berman worked for the Trump transition.
In April 2018, the office of Berman issued a search warrant for Michael Cohen, former lawyer of Donald Trump.

In January 2019, Berman charged Natalya Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer that was in the infamous meeting with Trump’s team about - providing damaging information, adoption of Russian children, Bill Bowder and/or the money laundering by the Russian Prevezon Holdings: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Berman

Assisting Berman, is none other than Maurene Comey – daughter of former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump in 2017.
James Comey was a U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York (in the period that Epstein was molesting girls in New York) before President George W. Bush selected him as deputy attorney general: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news ... ution-team

I guess that the prosecution team “forgot” all about the rest of the paedophiles, including Ghislaine Maxwell, who hasn´t spent a single day in prison even though she ran the sex ring with Epstein and sexually abused (groomed) underage girls.

According to the following story, Ghislaine Maxwell also “procured” young women in London for Epstein´s good friend - Prince Andrew.

One young woman, who didn´t engage in sexual activities, described her dinner with Andrew and Maxwell:
My car drove in the front gates of Buckingham Palace, stopped round the back and I was escorted up to his apartment.
Ghislaine was there, and it was clear immediately that I had been brought to the dinner as a sex object. Andrew sat next to me on the sofa and kept reaching over to hold my hand.

And in one of those strange coincidences, in August 2018, the SCL Group’s spin doctor Steve Bannon had a secret meeting with Jeffrey Epstein at his Upper East Side mansion in New York: https://pagesix.com/2018/08/11/steve-ba ... good-side/
