US Virgin Islands issues subpoena to Elon Musk in Epstein lawsuit
The US Virgin Islands has subpoenaed Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc., for documents in a lawsuit that accuses JPMorgan Chase & Co. of facilitating sexual abuses by Jeffrey Epstein.
The subpoena was issued on April 28 and was revealed in a court filing on Monday. The US territory has been unable to locate and serve Musk, prompting a request to serve him through alternative means.
The subpoena does not imply any wrongdoing on Musk’s part. The filing suggests that Musk may have been referred to JPMorgan by Epstein, but further details were not provided.
Musk denied receiving financial advice from Epstein in a tweet.
The US Virgin Islands alleges that JPMorgan overlooked warning signs of Epstein’s abuse on his private island.
The subpoena demands documents from Musk regarding Epstein’s involvement in human trafficking, his procurement of girls or women for sex, and any communications between Musk, JPMorgan, and Epstein.
It also includes information on fees paid by Musk to Epstein or JPMorgan.
