A man who said he once briefly met Jeffrey Epstein was excused from serving on the jury in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking case.

Identified in court only as Juror No. 280, the man described the encounter under questioning by U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan on Thursday. The judge later dismissed him from the jury pool.
