the last book I ever read (Julie K. Brown's Perversion of Justice: The Jeffery Epstein Story, excerpt six)

from Perversion of Justice: The Jeffery Epstein Story by Julie K. Brown:

Epstein’s civil lawyers, Robert Deweese Critton Jr., Michael Tein, and James Pike, were ruthless, and the legal maneuvers had become incredibly ugly. Magistrate Judge Linnea R. Johnson presided over the case, and it astonished me how much room she gave those civil lawyers to torture Epstein’s victims.

The worst was that she allowed Epstein’s lawyers to depose one of the girls’ parents and question them about their religious beliefs on abortion. The victim, who had undergone several abortions, had never told her devout Catholic parents about the abortions, and the depositions of her and her parents are among the most painful I’ve ever read.
