Jeffrey Epstein's estate faces lawsuit from new accuser

Another woman sued the estate of Jeffrey Epstein in Manhattan federal court on Monday, saying the late financier subjected her to a “vicious, prolonged sexual assault” at his New Mexico ranch when she was 15.

The woman, now 31, spoke at a news conference along with her lawyer Gloria Allred, but used the pseudonym Jane Doe to safeguard her privacy, the lawsuit said.

More than a dozen women have sued Epstein's estate. Epstein hanged himself in jail in August while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. He had pleaded not guilty.

Lawyers for the estate's executors could not be reached for comment.
