For Enabling Epstein Trial vs  JPMC Now USVI Says Bank Long Flagged His Large Withdrawals

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 12 – J.P. Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank were sued for their enabling of Jeffrey Epstein, in lawsuits filed on Thanksgiving in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where Inner City Press found them in the docket.

  The separate lawsuits allege that "without exorbitantly large amounts of cash, Epstein's operations could not run, as newly recruited victims were each paid hundreds of dollars in cash immediately after Epstein sexually abused them, as hush money."

   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 12, the US Virgin Islands filed its second amended complaint, including that " a JP Morgan Rapid Response Team noted that Epstein 'routinely' made cash withdrawals in amounts from $40,000 to $80,000 several times per month, totaling over $750,000 per year." Complaint and more on Patreon here.

  On April 6, Jes Staley asked to sever his case - and for seven hour depositions against all witnesses. The plaintiffs, too, wants Staley out, saying JPMC only cynically brought him in. Strange bedfellows... From Staley's letter: "This breakneck pace is unnecessary and prejudicial to Mr. Staley. He therefore respectfully requests that the Court grant two, independent forms of relief: first, the Court should sever the third-party claims against Mr. Staley from the claims against JPMorgan and order that those sets of claims be tried separately; second, the Court should reconsider its prior scheduling order and (a) grant Mr. Staley the right to take 7-hour, in-person depositions of all witnesses" Full letter on Patreon here.

On April 10 Judge Rakoff denied the motions to sever, and gave Staley five not seven hours: "MEMORANDUM ORDER denying [79] Motion to Sever; granting [79] Letter Motion for Extension of Time; denying [80] Motion re: [79] MOTION to Sever . MOTION for Extension of Time ., [80] MOTION Sever . In short, while the instant motion for severance could be denied on the ground that it simply rehashes arguments that Staley previously made and Jane Doe could have made, the Court, after a de novo review of the motion, denies it once again. The trial of these closely related claims, previously set for October 23, 2023, will not be moved. In an excess of liberality, the Court has also chosen to construe Staley's motion as an additional motion for modification of the pretrial discovery schedule, and on that basis will permit fact discovery by Mr. Staley's counsel (now scheduled to be completed by May 30) to continue for an additional seven weeks, i.e., until July 18, 2023. Similarly, the date for filing by Mr. Staley's counsel of Requests to Admit will be moved an additional seven weeks, i.e., until May 26, 2023. Finally, with respect to any witness who was deposed by other parties before March 16, 2023, Mr. Staley's counsel may, if they wish, take the further deposition of any such witness for up to five hours in duration. The Clerk is respectfully directed to close entries 79 and 80 on the docket of Jane Doe v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., 22-cv-10019, and entry 113 on the docket of Government of the United States Virgin Islands v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., 22-cv-10904. SO ORDERED.. (Signed by Judge Jed S. Rakoff on 4/10/2023)."
