Epstein victims' lawyer: Prince Andrew's co-operation 'extremely important' to get to bottom of what happened
Following days of turmoil that have damaged the royal family's reputation, the Duke of York announced on Wednesday that he would step back from public duties because of his association with a notorious American sex offender.
"It's great that he's stepping away from his royal duties, but it's really not about that.
It's about justice and accountability for the victims," said Lisa Bloom, who is a California-based attorney representing some of the victims who are suing Jeffrey Epstein's estate.
A U.S. appeals court on Monday dealt Ghislaine Maxwell a blow by refusing to block the release of a deposition she gave concerning her relationship with the late financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Gloria Tso reports.
(CNN) A federal judge has denied Ghislaine Maxwell's request to be moved to the general prison population, saying changes to her confinement are unnecessary at this time. Lawyers for Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's former girlfriend, who faces charges of recruiting, grooming and abusing minor girls as young as 14-years-old, asked the judge to transfer her out of a high-security cell in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, to allow her to better prepare for her defense.
