JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon Will Face 2 Days of Questioning in Epstein Case

On Tuesday, a federal Judge ordered Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, to allocate two days for depositions in a  case related to Jeffrey Epstein.

In late 2022, the U.S. Virgin Islands filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase for alleging the bank profited from Epstein’s sex trafficking scheme.

The lawsuit also accuses JPMorgan of “turning a blind eye” to suspicious activity that occurred from Epstein’s account.

U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George stated “Over more than a decade, JPMorgan (JPM) clearly knew it was not complying with federal regulations in regard to Epstein-related accounts as evidenced by its too-little too-late efforts after Epstein was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges.”

The lawsuit claims, “Human trafficking was the principal business of the accounts Epstein maintained at JPMorgan.”

George was subsequently fired.

The New York Post reports:

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon to set aside two days for depositions about what he knew about the bank’s relationship with sex offenderand former client Jeffrey Epstein.

The largest US bank faces lawsuits seeking damages by women who claim that Epstein sexually abused them, and by the US Virgin Islands, where the late financier had a home.

JPMorgan is separately suing former private banking chief Jes Staley, claiming he concealed what he knew about Epstein and should cover losses it may incur in the two lawsuits.

US District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan said Dimon can be questioned by the plaintiffs’ lawyers for five hours, and by Staley’s lawyer for two hours.

Rakoff may allow more time if anyone requests it. JPMorgan had offered to make Dimon available for three hours. An Oct. 23 trial is scheduled.

“The plaintiffs’ counsel know our CEO has no relevant knowledge, but persist with this media stunt,” JPMorgan said in a statement. “A review of more than two decades of emails and other documents makes it clear that he had no involvement with Epstein or his accounts. He does not recall ever meeting, speaking or communicating with him.”
