  • US Virgin Islands is suing JP Morgan, accusing the bank of facilitating Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking scheme.
  • As part of its lawsuit, the government wants to subpoena Google co-founder Larry Page.
  • Epstein “may have referred or attempted to refer” Page to JP Morgan, court documents said.

The US Virgin Islands is having trouble finding Google co-founder Larry Page to serve him a subpoena for its lawsuit against JP Morgan, court documents show.

The US Virgin Islands government sued JP Morgan Chase in December, accusing the bank of facilitating and concealing Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking enterprise.

As part of the lawsuit, the government wants to subpoena Page because it believes the tech executive may have had some connection to the disgraced financier.

“Upon information and belief, Larry Page … is a high-net-worth individual who Epstein may have referred or attempted to refer to JPMorgan,” a motion filed on Thursday said.

According to court documents, the government made several unsuccessful attempts to reach Page, who also owned two islands in US Virgin Islands as of late last year.

“The Government made good-faith attempts to obtain an address for Larry Page, including hiring an investigative firm to search public records databases for possible addresses,” records stated. “Our process server attempted service at the addresses identified by our investigative firm, but discovered the addresses were not valid for Mr. Page.”

An attorney representing the US Virgin Islands did not respond to a request for comment.

Documents show that a server attempted to reach Page at two Palo Alto addresses — one of which included a home close to Laurene Powell Jobs’s residence in the Old Palo Alto neighborhood.

With a deadline for discovery approaching at the end of May, the US Virgin Islands government is requesting a court to serve Page through alternative ways which can include service by certified mail.

Insider has reached out to Page for comment.
