Jeffrey Epstein's Legal Problems Go On

Over the weekend, Rush & Molloy reported that money manager Jeffrey Epstein recently settled a lawsuit that had been brought against him by one of his alleged victims, an unnamed woman who says the pervy billionaire forced her to be his sex slave from the ages of 15 to 19. The terms of the settlement weren't disclosed. (Word has it Epstein has offered other accusers "a minimum of $150,000" in the past.) But his legal problems are far from over: A dozen other women, who all claim Epstein took advantage of them when they were minors, still have lawsuits pending against him.

According to Rush & Molloy, those other suits are moving forward, and Epstein's pilot—the same one who's now trying to sell the shady money manager's Ferrari—was recently deposed and asked about some of the guests Epstein invited on his plane:

Bradley Edwards, an attorney for three of those women, recently questioned Epstein's pilot, Larry Visoski, about plane passengers who might have witnessed Epstein in the company of young girls. Mentioned in the deposition were Bill Clinton, Britain's Prince Andrew, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, former Colombian President Andrés Pastrana Arango, Obama economic adviser Lawrence Summers, billionaire Ron Burkle, and actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker. (While none of them has been accused of wrongdoing, any could be subpoenaed.)
Visoski corroborated that minors from other countries traveled on Epstein's plane but insisted he never suspected his boss of having sex with them.

The woman Epstein just settled with, who is identified in court papers as Jane Doe 102, made similar allegations in her suit, although she went on to suggest that some of Epstein's pals actually participated in the "sexual exploitation," too. One other tidbit she included in her suit: That Epstein refused to have anything to do with black women. The relevant passage from Jane Doe 102's just-settled suit is below, as is the full lawsuit, just in case you're looking for some tawdry reading this afternoon.
