Epstein also made notable donations to local politicians, including Democratic Virgin Islands Delegate Stacey Plaskett, according to Insider. Felicia Ellsworth, representing JPMorgan, argued that it was inappropriate for the judge to determine the bank’s knowledge before the trial and also contended that the U.S. territory lacked the legal standing to file a lawsuit, CNBC reported. She also argued that JPMorgan had notified the feds about Epstein’s transactions multiple times, including as early as 2002, the Daily Mail reported. Ellsworth went on to challenge the Virgin Islands’ claim that their client had impeded investigations into Epstein, asserting that the bank had proactively pursued information from federal authorities concerning their ongoing inquiries into Epstein’s behavior. The legal battle awaits U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff’s verdict on Thursday’s motions. A decision on expediting the resolution of major legal disputes is expected by the end of September, ahead of the Oct. 23 trial. Back in June, Rakoff gave his preliminary approval to JPMorgan’s $290 million settlement with women who claimed they were abused by Epstein. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
