A woman who says she was sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein is continuing her decade-long legal fight over a once-secret plea deal Epstein signed in Florida.
Courtney Wild asked an appeals court Monday to reverse a ruling that she said turned the Crime Victims' Rights Act into a "hollow promise."
Wild said the Atlanta court should award attorneys' fees and other legal remedies she sought in a lawsuit against the U.S. Justice Department.
A judge ruled this year that prosecutors violated her rights by not consulting her about the 2008 plea deal. But he awarded her no damages.
Epstein killed himself in a New York jail this summer awaiting trial on federal charges.
The Associated Press does not usually identify victims of sex crimes but Wild consented to be named.
