Hundreds of pages of unsealed documents from a lawsuit related to accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein were made public on Wednesday. The documents are expected to include nearly 200 names, including some of Epstein’s accusers, prominent businessmen, politicians and potentially more.

This is the first set of documents to be revealed as part of a December 18 court order; More are expected as part of the order.

CNN is now reviewing the documents.

The documents are filings in a settled case brought by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, an American woman who claimed that Epstein sexually abused her when she was a minor and that Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ex-girlfriend, aided in the abuse.

The newly revealed documents include filings such as depositions from Maxwell and Giuffre.

Many of the alleged victims and associates have given public interviews and have already been identified in the media. Inclusion in recently unredacted documents is not an indication of irregularities or violation of law.

The names of some victims remain withheld due to the sensitive nature of the crimes, according to court documents.

Epstein was indicted in 2019 on federal charges of operating a sex trafficking ring in which he allegedly sexually abused dozens of underage girls.

Epstein died by suicide in jail while awaiting trial. New York prosecutors charged Maxwell with sex trafficking involving multiple victims. She was sentenced in 2021..
