The jury in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial was sent home on Thursday morning, and the trial put on temporary hold, after a federal judge told the court that a lawyer in the case was sick and needed medical attention.
Judge Alison J. Nathan said she expected the trial to continue on Friday.
The announcement followed a brief discussion among the lawyers in the judge’s robing room, and after a government witness — a FedEx employee — finished her brief testimony Thursday morning.
Judge Nathan said the lawyer in question was necessary for the direct examination of an upcoming witness, the last of four accusers expected to take the witness stand in Ms. Maxwell’s trial. The judge said there was no reason to think the lawyer’s illness was Covid-19, but said the trial would break to make sure the lawyer received care.
By shortly after 10:30 a.m., lawyers and others were packing up bags and leaving the courtroom, some carrying files and cardboard boxes.
