As investigations into late financier Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged international sex trafficking ring continue even after his death, the U.S. Virgin Islands has alerted a local court of its intention to subpoena hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin and his wife Eva Andersson-Dubin as part of a racketeering lawsuit against Epstein.

 
KEY FACTS
Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise N. George filed a lawsuit in January of this year alleging Epstein brought hundreds of young women and girls (some as young as 11 years old) to his private island, Little St. James, which is located in the territory.

As part of this lawsuit, George is planning to subpoena the Dubins, according to notices filed Sept. 3 and made public Tuesday, asking for a trove of documents and communications, including those related to any financial transactions with Epstein or Epstein entities; any communication with Epstein-related females or knowledge of women transported to Epstein’s estate; and communication with any Epstein assistant or aide about an au pair or child care provider employed by the family.

Glenn Dubin’s filing specifically asks for documents and communications about Virginia Robert Giuffre, an alleged Epstein victim who said in a 2015 lawsuit unsealed last year that Dubin was among the men Epstein sent her to have sex with.

The Dubins previously denied these allegations to Forbes, saying the couple has flight records and other evidence “that definitively disprove that any such events occurred.”

Among the filings, George also requested information about Dubin’s hedge fund, Highbridge Capital, and the involvement of Epstein in the company’s $1.3 billion sale to JPMorgan in 2004.

Epstein was paid $15 million for his role in introducing Dubin to a JPMorgan executive.

BIG NUMBER

$2 billion. Glenn Dubin’s net worth, according to Forbes estimates. Dubin is the founder of Engineer’s Gate, a quantitative trading hedge fund, as well as Highbridge Capital, which he co-founded in 1992 and then sold to JPMorgan Chase.

KEY BACKGROUND
As Epstein died in jail in 2019 while awaiting trial, the Virgin Islands lawsuit has been filed against his estate. However, executors of the estate have fought with George over the lawsuit, alleging she’s delaying Epstein’s victims from receiving compensation. George, on the other hand, alleges those who stand to benefit from the estate are trying to protect their own assets. Authorities are also separately investigating Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend and associate, for her alleged role in the trafficking operation. Maxwell is currently being held in a New York jail ahead of a July 2021 trial.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

It’s unclear whether these subpoenas have already been served. The Dubins may also object to the requests.

QUICK TANGENT

George also filed intent to subpoena investor Leon Black in late August in order to uncover details related to Black’s business dealings with Epstein.
