Epstein Banks Two women who accused Jeffrey Epstein of sexual assault are suing the international investment banks JP Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank.
The dawn of 2023 is heralding a nervous time for many of Epstein’s banking associates.
Epstein Banks Update: January 1, 2023: The banks are asking a judge to dismiss the law suits.
“The banks also said they had no duty to protect the women from Epstein and did not cause his abuses, requiring the dismissal of claims under a new law in New York that lets abuse victims sue even if statutes of limitations have expired,” wrote Reuters.
“Jane Doe 1 is a survivor of Epstein’s sexual abuse, and she is entitled to justice,” but filed meritless claims against the “wrong party,” JPMorgan said in its filing.”
But Reuters added: “a lawyer for the women says the facts, as described in their complaints, speak for themselves.”
“We are disappointed in the banks’ continuing effort to avoid taking responsibility for their role in the expansion and perpetuation of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring,” David Boies, the lawyer, said in a statement to Reuters.
Epstein Banks Update December 29, 2022 : the US Virgin Islands, where Epstein had his private island, is also suing banks due to their links with the dead pedophile.
The lawsuit was filed in New York last month as a part of a class action. The filings stated the banks were ignoring “red flags” for its customers and profiting from the late predator’s sex trade.
The cases are being led by lawyers representing dozens of Epstein victims.
The women, who filed in New York City, stated they sought financial damages.
