Ghislaine Maxwell is fighting to prevent jurors from seeing a copy of Jeffrey Epstein's 'little black book' at her criminal trial

Ghislaine Maxwell doesn't want jurors to see a copy of the "little black book" Jeffrey Epstein kept in his mansion that lists contact information for rich and powerful people.

In partially redacted court filings from the past several weeks, federal prosecutors and attorneys for Maxwell have duked it out over whether a copy of the book — referenced in the filings as "Exhibit 52" — can be entered into evidence so that portions of it may be shown to jurors at the British socialite's sex-trafficking trial, which is scheduled to begin with opening statements on Monday.

"Ms. Maxwell requests that the government be precluded from discussing the book at trial prior to a proper evidentiary foundation being established," Maxwell's lawyers wrote in a court filing.
