Lawsuit: Epstein sex trafficking operation benefited banks

FOX: Women who accused Jeffrey Epstein of abuse filed a lawsuit against two banks they claim benefited financially from his sex trafficking system. 

Two separate lawsuits, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, are headed by women who remain anonymous in the filings and are suing Deutsche Bank AG and JPMorgan Chase & Co. The allegations include a claim the banks are at fault for “assisting, supporting, facilitating, and otherwise providing the most critical service for the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking organization to successfully rape, sexually assault, and coercively sex traffic.” 

The accusers claim the banks had knowledge of the pattern of sex trafficking from Epstein — an allegation denied by Deutsche Bank.

“We believe this claim lacks merit and will present our arguments in court,” a spokesperson for Deutsche Bank said.  MORE

  1. Problematic legal theory being proposed here. While I wish the victims well, I can’t get behind a free-for-all lawfare against anyone who might be peripherally involved and somehow reading their minds to claim “that they should have known”.

  2. Another money laundering scheme. Sue the banks, the perps pay the banks in return for anonymity and the money is paid out. Everybody wins.

  3. To validate their claims they should have to name the clients to whom Epstein prostituted them.
    And let those clients testify as to how they paid, the nature of their financial transactions, &c, to determine the banks’ culpability.

  4. in an old west town, the local bad girl got pregnant, so the city fathers passed the hat, paid the doctor and got the baby adopted. Next bank meeting, the accountant said the bank came out on the black. An old cattleman in the back yelled, ” I move we breed her again.”
