JPMChase Barred Woman From Joint Account After Husband's Death, Judge Says Find Trace

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 9 – Lurline Lewy and her husband Rudolph had a $104,000 account at JP Morgan Chase Bank at 596 Fort Washington Avenue in Manhattan. 

  Her husband died, and Chase denied her access to the funds. Now after years are asking she has sued, and Chase says it's too late. 

      On June 8, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Morgan Chase pushed its argument that it is too late.

Judge Hellerstein remarked that a bank should be expected to keep records.

He denied the motion to dismiss.

On July 9, Judge Hellerstein held another proceeding in the case. He said pointedly that he found it hard to believe there are not traces of where the money is. He told the parties what to do before the next conference, which he said should be on a Friday, "I do it on Fridays." It is December 10, 2021 at 10 am, along with other cases.

The case is Lewy v. JP Morgan Chase Bank & Co. et al., 20-cv-10048 (Hellerstein)
