Jeffrey Epstein Accuser Seeks Testimony from JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon in Lawsuit
In a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase concerning its association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, lawyers representing a victim of Epstein have requested new testimony from JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon.
The lawyers allege that JPMorgan deliberately withheld documents necessary for questioning during previous depositions. Hindering their ability to address important issues.
The accuser, known as Jane Doe, claims that the bank facilitated and financially benefited from Epstein’s sex trafficking activities.
JPMorgan denies any wrongdoing but expresses regret for having Epstein as a client.
The lawyers are seeking to reopen the depositions of JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Mary Erdoes (CEO of JPMorgan’s asset and wealth management division).
Mary Casey (Epstein’s former banker at JPMorgan), and an unidentified JPMorgan representative.
The request stems from the late production of documents after the initial depositions were completed.
These documents reportedly shed light on Epstein’s relationship with JPMorgan. And raise questions about the bank’s knowledge and response to red flags.
The accuser’s lawyers argue that timely access to these documents would have influenced their line of questioning during Dimon’s deposition.

Lawyer Sigrid McCawley highlights Judge Jed Rakoff’s previous admonishment of JPMorgan for slow document production.
Despite the warning, JPMorgan allegedly continued to delay providing documents from key witnesses’ custodial files for strategic reasons.
The lawyers claim that JPMorgan intentionally produced documents after witnesses had already been deposed, potentially influencing the course of questioning.
One document references an internal review of communications between JPMorgan and Epstein, conducted after Epstein’s arrest and death in 2019. The lawyers assert that timely access to these documents would have impacted Dimon’s deposition.
JPMorgan spokesman Joseph Evangelisti maintains that Dimon had no personal or professional association with Epstein and wishes that Epstein had never been a client of the bank.
JPMorgan denies any wrongdoing in connection with Epstein and asserts that Dimon’s testimony will not change the facts surrounding their relationship.
The bank continues to contend with the lawsuit brought forth by Epstein’s victim and a separate claim by the U.S. Virgin Islands government.
