Jeffrey Epstein's Estate Seeks to Establish 'Claims Resolution Program' as Alternative to Litigation

Attorneys managing the estate of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein last week filed papers in the Superior Court of the U.S. Virgin Islands — where Epstein’s will is in probate — seeking to establish a "claims resolution program" that would allow victims to pursue claims without litigation, CNN reports. Executors have hired several prominent lawyers to manage claims for Epstein's alleged victims, including the former deputy special master of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund who will act as administrator, and attorneys who oversee a fund for sexual abuse victims in 23 dioceses of the Catholic Church. There are currently at least 11 active lawsuits against the Epstein estate.
