The names of more than 170 people with ties to Jeffrey Epstein, including victims and former employees, are set to be named in a slew of court documents a Manhattan federal judge has authorized to be unsealed, the New York Post reports.

Judge Loretta Preska Monday ordered the documents in the defamation lawsuit that Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre brought in 2015 against Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell, be “unsealed in full.”

Previously, the names were only identified as “Jane Does” and “John Does” in the court filings.

Judge Preska gave the individuals named in the documents 14 days to appeal the decision.

Names of those who have not spoken out publicly and who were minors at the time of the alleged sex abuse, will not be revealed, the judge decided, saying it would “disclose sensitive information regarding an alleged minor victim of sexual abuse who has not spoken publicly and who has maintained his or her privacy.”

Guiffre’s lawsuit, charging Maxwell with defaming her for saying she lied about being sex-trafficked as a teen, was settled in 2017 for an undisclosed amount.

Details from the court filings, however, have emerged over the years.
