Jeffrey Epstein’s life, misdeeds, and death make for a sordid and scandalous tale. Epstein’s story is the backdrop of a new securities class action lawsuit that has been filed against Barclays, its former CEO, James “Jes” Staley, and certain other company executives, in which the plaintiff alleges that Staley and Barclays misled investors about the relationship Staley had with Epstein during Staley’s prior position at JP Morgan Chase Bank. This new complaint’s filing follows shortly after the U.K Financial Conduct Authority in October announced its decision to fine Staley and ban him from officer positions in the financial services industry based on its finding that Staley “recklessly approved a letter to the FCA” that the agency said “misled” the FCA and the Barclays board about Staley’s relationship with Epstein. A copy of the new securities lawsuit complaint, filed on November 1, 2023, can be found here.
