Ghislaine Maxwell is trying to prevent nude photographs and “sexualised video” evidence from being unsealed ahead of her trial, according to a new court appeal.
Ms Maxwell’s attorneys details the “highly confidential” material in a proposed protective order filed at a Manhattan court on Monday, arguing it should be kept out of public view.
“The highly confidential information contains nude, partially-nude, or otherwise sexualised images, videos, or other depictions of individuals,” which Ms Maxwell does not wish to be “disseminated, transmitted, or otherwise copies,” it reads.
