The Denver-based law firm Haddon, Morgan and Foreman, P.C. has alleged in a lawsuit filed against Ghislaine Maxwell, her brother and her husband that they are owed more than $878,000 in unpaid legal fees that have accumulated since her 2020 arrest.
Ghislaine Maxwell's attorney argued in a letter to federal court Saturday that her client is not suicidal and had been placed on suicide watch “without having conducted a psychological evaluation and without justification."
In newly filed court documents, prosecutors refuted Ghislaine Maxwell's claims that she is being scapegoated, noting that the socialite "was an adult who made her own choices" when she engaged in the sex trafficking for which she was convicted.
In response to a set of appeals from Ghislaine Maxwell's legal team, U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan upheld her conviction a second time but concluded that three of the charges on which she was convicted should be consolidated into one charge.
Federal Judge Alison J. Nathan refused to order a new trial for Ghislaine Maxwell, convicting of child sex trafficking charges, despite the presence of a juror who told reporters after the trial that he had been a victim of child sexual abuse.
