The Manhattan federal judge overseeing Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex trafficking case has ordered a hearing next week on prosecutors’ request to close the proceedings following the disgraced financier’s death Aug. 10 in his jail cell.

U.S. Judge Richard M. Berman of the Southern District of New York on Wednesday scheduled a “brief hearing” Aug. 27, at which attorneys for the government, Epstein and his accusers were invited to discuss a proposed nolle pros order to drop sex trafficking and conspiracy charges against Epstein.
