Virginia Roberts, the woman who claims she was an underage sex slave for perverted financier Jeffrey Epstein has won another round in her fight against the woman she claims recruited her.
Roberts’ lawyers persuaded a judge to throw out a motion that would have prevented her from suing Epstein’s one-time girlfriend and alleged ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell for defamation.
Dailymail.com has learned the decision clears the way for the civil case to go ahead in New York in two weeks’ time.
The defamation suit alleges Maxwell instructed her spokesman to attack Roberts’ honesty and truthfulness and to accuse her of lying.
Maxwell, the daughter of former British press baron Robert Maxwell who died when he fell off his yacht in 1991, had argued that a press release in which she attacked Roberts was protected speech.
But Judge Robert Sweet refused to accept that argument in a 76-page decision, saying that Roberts was arguing that Maxwell released the damaging statement out of ‘malice.’
