For Enabling Epstein JPMC Deal Opposed By State AGs Who Chase Claims Have No Standing

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 6 – J.P. Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank were sued for their enabling of Jeffrey Epstein, in lawsuits filed on Thanksgiving 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where Inner City Press found them in the docket.

  Late on May 17, 2023, plaintiffs' lawyer David Boies selectively announced a $75 million settlement with Deutsche Bank.

Nothing was filed in the docket until May 18: "Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Jed S. Rakoff: Telephone Conference held on 5/17/2023,without transcription or recording. Plaintiffs motion for preliminary approval of proposed class settlement is due by 5/26/2023. A preliminary fairness hearing will be held at 4:00 PM on 6/1/2023 in Courtroom 14B, the Daniel Patrick Moynihan U.S. Courthouse, 500 Pearl St., New York, NY."

In fact the fairness hearing was held on October 20, 2023. Inner City Press went. It was approved.

But for JPM Chase, on November 2 this opposition: "ORDER: Sarah Ransome, a putative member of the class preliminarily certified in the above-captioned case, has submitted an application requesting permission to appear virtually at the final class action settlement fairness hearings scheduled in this matter for November 9, 2023 at 4:00 PM to orally express her objections to the settlement. See Dkt. 247, at 3 & n.2. That application is hereby granted. full order on Patreon here (Signed by Judge Jed S. Rakoff on 11/2/2023)."

On November 6, as the state Attorneys General's objections, Chase wrote in that they have no standing.

   The JPM Chase complaint is on Patreon, here.

On March 20, 2023 Judge Jed S. Rakoff in a bottom line order dismissed some but not all claims, in the Epstein-related cases against JPMC and Deutsche Bank.

Inner City Press put the order on its DocumentCloud here.

On April 28, a motion seeking class certification of Epstein-related claims against JPMC was filed; filing on Patreon here.
