The United States Virgin Islands is seeking damages from JPMorgan over its alleged links to Epstein, claiming that the Wall Street giant "turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking" despite the many red flags raised over Epstein's involvement in heinous crimes.

The U.S. Virgin Islands lawsuit, initially filed in December by the former attorney general of the territory, accused JPMorgan of facilitating and benefiting from Epstein's sex trafficking operations.

On Feb. 23, the U.S. Virgin Islands filed documents in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan demanding that JPMorgan provide the territory with relevant documents from 2015 to 2019 involving Dimon, labeling him "a likely source of relevant and unique information."

The lawyers also wanted Dimon to be deposed, claiming he played an important role in JPMorgan's decision to continue providing banking services to Epstein.
