Second batch of Jeffrey Epstein court documents revealed

A second batch in what’s set to be an avalanche of long-sealed court documents tied to Jeffrey Epstein were filed Thursday.

The trove of newly-unsealed files dropped a day after an initial batch of more than 40 court papers were made public — and featured dozens of rich, powerful and famous names who once socialized or worked with the late pedophile.

So far, a lengthy list of high-profile names — from Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton to late scientist Stephen Hawking — have already garnered a mention in the files released late Wednesday.

Sources said more documents are set to be filed Friday and possibly on Monday, for a total of 240 — and are expected to name more than 170 Epstein associates, ex-employees and victims in total.

The full cache of documents, ordered released by Manhattan federal Judge Loretta Preska last month, are part of a since-settled defamation lawsuit that Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre brought against the dead sex offender’s madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, in 2015.

Thousands of pages of documents from the lawsuit had already been made public, but some sections and names had been redacted because of privacy concerns.

Among the claims included in Wednesday’s document dump were allegations that Prince Andrew participated in an “underage orgy.”

One woman, only identified as “Jane Doe 3,” testified in 2014 deposition that she was “forced to have sexual relations with this Prince when she was a minor” — including at Maxwell’s London apartment, in New York and “on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands (in an orgy with numerous other underaged girls).”

Another Epstein victim, Johanna Sjoberg, who worked as a masseuse for the financier, said in a 2016 deposition that the now-disgraced royal groped her breast as she sat on his lap in Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse in 2001. 

Elsewhere in the same deposition, Sjoberg also testified that Epstein once said former President Bill Clinton “likes them young” and the late sex offender had once suggested stopping his private jet at one of former President Donald Trump’s casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Sjoberg said she once met Michael Jackson at Epstein’s Palm Beach, Florida, home, but that nothing untoward happened with the late pop icon.

And she testified about attending a dinner at one of Epstein’s homes where magician David Copperfield did magic tricks before asking if she was aware “that girls were getting paid to find other girls,” according to the filing.

None of the well-known men — aside from the disgraced British royal — have been accused of wrongdoing.
