Verified Twitter is ablaze at news of Jeff Epstein’s arrest for sex trafficking, and they are dishonestly trying to pretend that Mike Cernovich didn’t file the original lawsuit leading to scrutiny regarding Epstein. Here is a quote from the Court’s opinion:
On January 19, 2017, Cernovich, an independent blogger and self‐described “popular political journalist,” moved to intervene, seeking to unseal the summary judgment record, and Dershowitz joined his motion. On April 6, 2018, after the case had settled, the Herald moved to intervene and unseal the entire docket. The District Court granted each of these motions to intervene, but denied the related requests to unseal in orders entered November 2, 2016, May 3, 2017, and August 27, 2018, respectively.
The Appellants timely appealed from each of the orders denying their respective motions to unseal. Although each Appellant seeks the release of a different set of documents, all argue that the District Court failed to analyze the documents individually or properly apply the presumption of public access to court documents. We therefore ordered that the appeals be heard in tandem and held argument on March 6, 2019. On March 11, 2019, we issued an order to show cause why we “should not unseal the summary judgment motion, including any materials filed in connection with this motion, and the District Court’s summary judgment decision.”8 The parties timely filed their responses.
On May 4, 2017, Politico published a story about the lawsuit.
- In recent months, the suit attracted the attention of pro-Trump blogger Mike Cernovich, who intervened in the case in an unsuccessful push to release a large volume of blacked-out court filings. “I want to know what’s really going on and we can’t get it,” Cernovich told POLITICO. “This is a big story. My people care.”
Julie Brown of the Miami Herald will win a Pultizer for her work on the Jeff Epstein story. She began her deep and important work in 2018. She did 10 times as much reporting as I did, and I wish her nothing but accolades.
But anyone claiming I wasn’t first to file, at considerable personal and financial risk to myself, is simply lying.
A lot of people say, “Why do you care who gets credit?”
Those people are called losers who never put their own skin in the game.
In the real world, issues like these matter, as this stuff isn’t free or inexpensive.
And going after billionaire pedophiles is the kind of stuff that gets you hurt or worse.
