JPMorgan Chase Monday that they have reached a settlement with one of the victims of the late sex predator Jeffrey Epstein, who had sued the bank in federal court.
The bank’s lawsuit with the US Virgin Islands in the Epstein case remains, however. His claims against former boss Jes Staley, who was friends with Epstein, are also active, the bank said.
The victim and the Virgin Islands, where Epstein had a private island, both say JPMorgan continued to work with Epstein after learning he was a predator, and helped the his sex trafficking crimes.
The news comes more than a week after JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon gave a deposition in the Epstein cases. On Friday, Epstein’s victim, known as Jane Doe 1 in documents, asked the court to reopen Dimon’s deposition.
JPMorgan has denied wrongdoing and says it regrets having Epstein as a client.
