With lawsuits piling up against Jeffrey Epstein’s estate, his lawyers asked a judge Wednesday to hasten approval of a victim-compensation fund, according to new court papers.

The program was proposed last month, in order to facilitate settling claims with victims who say they were sexually abused by the dead pedophile, and the estate’s lawyers asked for an “expedited approval” at the time.

Why the hurry? Too many details out there?

The “rightful heirs” know that there's a real chance that there’ll be nothing left for them after all the civil suits against the estate.

They are lawyers. Their job is to advocate for the estate.

settlement agreements with an NDA and no admission of liability, culpability. Buy their silence, get it out of the public eye.
