Following rumors that a court is about to make public a file listing some of Jeffrey Epstein's associates—possibly including some well-known individuals who took part in his crimes—speculation is running wild.

However, the Associated Press said that the reality is much less shocking. Most of the individuals included in the files are not charged with any crimes, as the AP notes.

One of Epstein's victims, Virginia Giuffre, filed a complaint against his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, claiming that Epstein mistreated her at his houses in Florida, New York, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and New Mexico. As a result, the files are now available for public scrutiny.

Although the lawsuit was resolved in 2017, throughout the following years, case-related documents were made public. The last batch is scheduled for release as soon as Wednesday, but was kept under wraps because of privacy rights concerns.

"U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska, who evaluated the documents to decide what should be unsealed, said in her December order that she was releasing the records because much of the information within them is already public," according to an AP story.

In previous court instances, some documents have been made public, either in whole or in part. Almost two decades' worth of newspaper articles, TV documentaries, interviews, books, and evidence in Maxwell's criminal prosecution have all thoroughly covered the subjects and subjects of the majority of the remaining pieces."
