JPMorgan Chase managed more than $1.1 million in payments from Jeffrey Epstein to “girls or women” after the huge bank states it fired the sex transgressor as a customer, a legal representative for the U.S. Virgin Islands informed a judge Monday.

Many of the women or ladies had Eastern European surnames, the lawyer, Linda Singer, composed to Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff.

And more than $320,000 of the payments were made to “numerous individuals for whom JPMorgan had no previously identified payments,” Singer composed in the letter.

The letter implicates JPMorgan of stopping working to divulge the payments up until after completion of discovery, the duration throughout which the bank and the Virgin Islands exchanged proof as part of a continuous suit.

Singer asked Rakoff to enforce financial sanctions on JPMorgan for not turning over the info when the Virgin Islands stated it ought to have been divulged, and to buy the bank to turn over “all financial records for any newly disclosed girls or women to whom Epstein made payments.”

The Virgin Islands in its match declares that JPMorgan assisted in and economically took advantage of sex trafficking by Epstein of girls throughout the years when he patronized.

Epstein preserved a house on a personal island in the American area where he sexually abused ratings of ladies, and throughout that time kept 10s of countless dollars on deposit at JPMorgan.

JPMorgan states it cut ties to Epstein in2013 But Monday’s court filing challenges the bank’s timeline.

The bank rejects any misdeed associated toEpstein JPMorgan spokesperson Patricia Wexler, when inquired about Singer’s letter, stated, “There is no proof this is accurate.”

Singer composed that files just recently turned over by JPMorgan consisted of info that had actually been formerly looked for by the Virgin Islands throughout the discovery duration.

That info was put together internally by the bank in October 2019, more than 3 months after Epstein was jailed on federal kid sex trafficking charges. Epstein eliminated himself in prison in August 2019.

“There is no legitimate reason for JPMorgan failing to identify payments to girls or women the bank itself identified as being related to Epstein — and potential evidence of Epstein’s sex trafficking venture — years before receiving the USVI’s discovery requests,” the lawyer composed.

The letter states that a spreadsheet prepared by JPMorgan noting the dates and recipients of more than 9,000 deals payable to Epstein- associated individuals in between 2005 and 2019 “had a combined value of over $2.4 billion.”

“Many of the entries reflected accounts and payments, numbering in the thousands and totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars in value, of which USVI had no prior knowledge or information from JPMorgan’s responses and productions during the fact discovery period,” Singer composed.

The letter states that JPMorgan has actually argued the info was not divulged earlier “because it was not in a custodial production and/or did not relate to individuals specifically identified by the USVI as related to Epstein.”

But Singer kept in mind, “The USVI has repeatedly made clear that its discovery requests are not limited to individuals it specifically identified as being related to Epstein.”

“The USVI specifically identified the individuals it knew were related to Epstein to make its discovery requests clearer — not relieve JPMorgan of its duty to produce known relevant documents,” the legal representative composed.

Singer informed Rakoff that it stays uncertain whether JPMorgan has actually now divulged all of the payments from Epstein to women and ladies.

The legal representative asked the judge to buy JPMorgan to produce, within 5 days, all files and info worrying its 2019 evaluation of its organization with Epstein, and “all financial records for any newly disclosed girls or women to whom Epstein made payments.”
