This is an interesting mess.
The Judge that refused to hear the motion to modify the order was Judge Richard W. Roberts who retired last month a day after being accused of raping a then 16 year old witness 35 years ago when he was a Justice Department lawyer. (through his lawyers, he's alleging the sex was consensual)
The DC Madam hung herself in her mom's shed two weeks after she was found guilty (out on bail awaiting sentencing I imagine) of various crimes but he'd already been fired by her way before then (before she was convicted).
Sibley is also claiming that the records in question are already digitized and on four web servers and that if he doesn't reset a timer every 72 hours, emails will go out to various members of the press containing a link to the records.
Sibley himself is a very colorful character who has apparently sued SCOTUS for treason, has has his license suspended, been disbarred and run a write-in campaign for president.
EDIT to add:
Oh and let's not forget, he's been threatening to release the documents even if the order is not modified though I don't think he's stated a specific deadline.

I'm a little leery because, 1, he's a big time attorney,
3, It's filing a bunch of paperwork to get the court orders lifted, why $25K? Seems like a lot. Sounds fishy.

If he really has a list, he could get a lot more than a paltry $25K to expose it. I'm sure there is more money in keeping it quiet. I call B.S. on this one.

Months ago Sibley was saying the Madam's black book list would affect the presidential election.
That was when there were alot more candidates still in the race.
He is now more frantic than ever to get the list public, still saying that it would affect the race.
With the candidates down to 5, it narrows down the suspects.
I doubt it is Kasich, since he has pretty much been written off as a viable candidate.
I doubt it is Trump, as his reputation is known and no one would care, and I highly doubt he would need a madam's service.
I... doubt it was Hillary.
Sanders does not really seem the type, but who knows.
That leaves the most likely one - Cruz. The one basing his campaign on being a moral Christian.
