Epstein, 66, was arrested in early July on charges of sexually abusing and trafficking dozens of young girls in the early 2000s. The wealthy financier, whose social circle once included Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, pleaded not guilty.

Epstein took his own life inside a cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center days after a judge denied his request to await trial at his Manhattan mansion.

Several women had already filed civil suits by the time of his death. At least a half dozen alleged victims have sued Epstein's estate in the subsequent weeks and months.

At the hearing Thursday, Epstein's estate attorney Bennet Moskowitz said he was still trying to gain a complete picture of Epstein's finances. The estate, he said, is "perhaps the most complex estate I'm aware of."

Jeffrey Epstein’s Estate May Set Up a Program to Pay Accusers

  Jeffrey Epstein’s Estate May Set Up a Program to Pay Accusers Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein’s estate are considering setting up a program to resolve claims filed by women who say they were abused by the financier, who killed himself in August while facing federal sex trafficking charges. The plan was disclosed in a court filing on Tuesday by a lawyer for one of Mr. Epstein’s accusers, who is suing the estate in federal court in Manhattan. The filing said lawyers for Mr. Epstein’s estate had informed plaintiffs that they were planning to disclose details of a “claims resolution program” to a court in the United States Virgin Islands, where the mysteriously wealthy Mr. Epstein had his will filed shortly before his death.

Just two days before his death, Epstein placed $578 million in assets in a trust.

The plaintiffs' lawyers expressed frustration with Moskowitz, saying they still didn't have basic details about the estate such as how much it's worth and who is it's beneficiary.

"It is now long past time for our client and other survivors to finally obtain some measure of justice," Kaplan, who represents a woman allegedly abused by Epstein when she was 14, said in a statement.

"Our client's claims are not complicated and therefore can and should be tried as soon as possible if a settlement cannot be reached in short order," Kaplan added.

The hearing was held two days after a pair of corrections officers were indicted in connection with his suicide.

Michael Thomas and Tova Noel, who were on duty the night before Epstein was found dead, were charged with six counts tied to falsifying prison records.

An investigation into Epstein's web of enablers remains ongoing.
