An attorney for the U.S. Virgin Islands alleged in federal court that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon knew about Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking crimes.
“Jamie Dimon knew in 2008 that his billionaire client was a sex trafficker,” attorney Mimi Liu told Manhattan U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff at a Thursday hearing, CNBC reports.
The ongoing lawsuit claims JPMorgan Chase ignored the truth surrounding Epstein and his crimes to keep him as a client.
Former U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George accused JPMorgan Chase of “knowingly providing and pulling the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid.”
A U.S. judge ruled earlier this month that JPMorgan Chase must provide additional records from CEO Jamie Dimon relating to the lawsuit.
