According to a court filing on Monday, the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, has been issued a subpoena by the U.S. Virgin Islands in relation to their lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase.

The lawsuit pertains to allegations of sex trafficking involving the late longtime customer of the bank, Jeffrey Epstein, CNBC reported.

The Virgin Islands has been unsuccessful in serving Musk with the subpoena, which was issued on April 28, as they suspect that Epstein may have referred or attempted to refer Musk as a client to JPMorgan.

In the filing, the U.S. territory has requested permission from Judge Jed Rakoff of the Manhattan federal court to serve the subpoena to Musk through Tesla’s registered agent.

The subpoena specifically requests Musk to provide any documents that demonstrate communication between himself, JPMorgan, and Epstein.

Additionally, it seeks all documents that reflect or relate to Epstein’s involvement in human trafficking and/or his involvement in procuring girls or women for consensual sex.

The Virgin Islands’ lawsuit against JPMorgan accuses the bank of enabling and benefiting from Epstein’s trafficking of young women to his private island in the U.S. territory, where they were subjected to abuse by Epstein and others.
