Dimon agreed to be interviewed under oath, at an undetermined date in the future, for two civil lawsuits tied to the convicted sex offender Epstein, according to the person, who declined to be identified speaking about the case.

The suits, one from an alleged victim and another from the U.S. Virgin Islands, allege that the New York-based bank ignored red flags about Epstein and profited from dealing with him. Earlier this month, JPMorgan sought to lay any blame from the episode on a former senior executive.

The development was reported earlier by the Financial Times.
