According to Daily Mail, prosecutors in her upcoming sex trafficking trial don't argue that Maxwell was allowed to bring a "cart full of legal materials" into the conference room; however, it's what she did with the cart that's in dispute.

"The defendant used that cart to barricade the door to the VTC room, thereby preventing MDC staff from being able to access the room," they argue in the legal documents.

Claiming Ghislaine caused a "security threat," prosecutors continued, "Because of the security threat posed by the use of the cart to barricade the door to the VTC room, the defendant is no longer permitted to bring the cart into the room."

Prosecutors say she's still allowed to bring her legal documents in sans the cart.

"Instead, the defendant may bring whatever materials she can carry into the room, and if she needs other materials during a particular meeting with counsel, she may leave the VTC room, retrieve those materials by hand, and then return to her meeting with counsel," the documents read.

However, Ghislaine's attorney Bobbi Sternheim says no such event took place, claiming her client "never" tried to barricade the door.

This is in direct response to the disgraced socialite's legal team accusing prison officials of taping their private video conferences.

As Radar reported, Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam's attorney fired off a letter to the judge demanding the Metropolitan Detention Center's [MDC] lawyers prove a "sworn statement regarding whether any VTCs [video teleconferences] between Ms. Maxwell and counsel have been interfered with, listened to, and/or recorded."

Ghislaine has been holed up at the Brooklyn detention center since July 2020, where she awaits her upcoming sex trafficking trial.

She's being accused of recruiting women and young girls for Epstein and his rich friends' to abuse for their sexual pleasures.

Epstein died in prison while awaiting his own sex trafficking trial in 2019. The disgraced mogul was found hanging in his cell.
