JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon to be deposed in Epstein case: report

JPMorgan Chase is being sued in two lawsuits seeking damages involving the bank's dealings with Jeffrey Epstein

JPMorgan Chase boss Jamie Dimon will be deposed under oath in connection with the bank's relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, the late sex offender and a former client, a lawyer involved in the case said. 

Reuters reports the interview is expected to happen in early May, according to Brad Edwards, a lawyer representing women who claim to have been sexually abused by Epstein.

The women are suing the largest U.S. bank for allegedly enabling the financier's sex trafficking.

FOX Business has reached out to JPMorgan Chase for comment.

Epstein was a client from 2000 to 2013, with the last five years coming after he had pleaded guilty to a Florida prostitution charge.

JPMorgan is defending in Manhattan federal court two lawsuits seeking damages over its dealings with Epstein.

One involves a proposed class action by Epstein's accusers and the other was brought by the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned a home.

JPMorgan has tried to dismiss the lawsuit, noting the Virgin Islands government has already settled with Epstein's estate for more than $100 million.

JP MORGAN SUES FORMER EXECUTIVE OVER JEFFREY EPSTEIN TIES, POTENTIAL DAMAGES

Earlier this month, a U.S. District Judge ordered JPMorgan to turn over documents from 2015 to 2019 – a period after which JPMorgan had dropped Epstein as a client. 

The bank is also suing Jes Staley, a former private banking chief and later Barclays chief executive who had been friendly with Epstein.

JPMorgan wants Staley to reimburse it for eight years of compensation and damages it might incur in the other lawsuits.
