A federal judge on Thursday ordered investment banking giant JP Morgan to turn over documents related to CEO Jamie Dimon and late child sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.

As reported by Law & Crime's Adam Klasfeld, the judge ordered the bank to turn over the documents at the request of the government of the United States Virgin Islands, which is investigating Epstein's past as a client with JP Morgan.

Klasfeld notes that the judge did not outline any specifics behind its ruling, and that JP Morgan has insisted that Dimon had nothing to do with managing Epstein's account at the firm.

JP Morgan recently sued former senior banker Jes Staley while alleging that he covered up "personal activities" he engaged in with Epstein that the bank says opened them up to potential legal liability.

The Virgin Islands' lawsuit against JP Morgan unveiled some of Staley's significant contacts with Epstein earlier this year.

“Between 2008 and 2012, Staley exchanged approximately 1,200 emails with Epstein from his JP Morgan email account,” the government alleged. “These communications show a close personal relationship and ‘profound’ friendship between the two men and even suggest that Staley may have been involved in Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation.”
