(CNN) A federal judge ruled on Thursday to publicly release documents that have been kept under seal in a case involving Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's one-time girlfriend and alleged accomplice.

US District Judge Loretta Preska verbally unsealed the documents in a ruling held via teleconference.

She is giving Maxwell's legal team a week to pursue an appeal to her decision but ordered the court to have the documents ready to be posted "within a week.".

The documents are connected to a 2015 defamation case brought by Virginia Roberts Giuffre , who claimed Epstein sexually abused her while she was a minor and that Maxwell aided in the abuse.

Included in the now unsealed documents are Maxwell's 2016 deposition related to the lawsuit in which she denies knowing if Epstein had a scheme to recruit underage girls for sex.

Other documents include emails and depositions by others, including Giuffre and anonymous women who also claim to have been abused by Epstein.

Preska ruled that several medical records included in the court filings will remain sealed. »

Instead of taking a dispute over the slogan Just Plane Smart to a courtroom, Herb agreed with Stevens Aviation chairman Kurt Herwald to settle their differences in a wrestling rink.

It took place at the Dallas Sportatorium, which although once a fixture in the pro wrestling circuit of the 80s and 90s, had probably never held a louder crowd.

The day before, the professional announcer hired for the event became sick, and I received a call from Southwest's Executive Office asking for me to fill in. »
