Jane Doe 107 Delays Epstein Client List from Being Released
AS EXPECTED: The court has just announced that the full Epstein client list will not be released until at least January 22, following the approval of Doe 107's request for a 30-day extension.
Who could Jane doe be?
“As Doe 107 has previously stated, she lives outside the United States in a culturally conservative country and lives in fear of her name being released,” the woman’s attorney, Richard Levitt, wrote to U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska.
In October, Preska ordered Doe to submit “an affidavit supporting her assertion that she faces a risk of physical harm in her country of residence and providing detail concerning the hate mail she received” as well as “additional factual support for Doe 107’s contention that unsealing the relevant records would put her at risk of physical harm.
Doe 107 filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to fight the unsealing of her documents.
The appeals court, in an order remanding the issue to Preska for further review, noted that Doe argued identifying her “could place her in mortal danger in her culturally conservative home country,” where “‘honor’ killings are a real risk.”
