A New York federal judge on Monday ruled that the U.S. Virgin Islands and women who accuse the late investor Jeffrey Epstein of sex trafficking can proceed with some of their claims in a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase over the bank’s ties to Epstein.

The judge also allowed parts of a separate lawsuit by Epstein’s accusers against Deutsche Bank to proceed.
