[Ed. – Very interesting.  As far as I can tell, Maxwell is still in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she was taken on removal from New Hampshire.  Jeffrey Epstein died at the MDC in Manhattan, which is IN the SDNY where he and Maxwell have both come under indictment (Brooklyn is in the EDNY).  So this judge is on the SDNY bench.  Keeping Maxwell in Brooklyn may be a way for the DOJ to retain visibility into how her safety is being guaranteed. ]
