Bloom Firm Files Lawsuit Against Epstein Estate for New Accuser

Jeffrey Epstein's Suicide Attempt Surveillance Footage Missing

NEW YORK — Lisa Bloom, the daughter of powerhouse lawyer Gloria Allred, is the attorney for five women who allege that Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused them. Four lawsuits were filed in 2019 as reported by The Guardian on August 25th.

Three more accusers have joined their ranks. Epstein had been accused of sexual misconduct and jailed before his mysterious suicide in prison on August 10, 2019.

Of note, the two Bloom represents were minors at the time of the abuse. The fifth lawsuit was only recently filed against his estate, now controlled by executors. She knew Epstein from 2003-2013 working for his close friend. A fund has been set up to compensate victims.

The executors, Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn, said in a statement last November 14th that the fund would create a “voluntary, confidential, non-adversarial alternative to litigation.”

Bloom said her mission in representing the alleged Epstein victims was “to deliver justice that was denied when jail authorities allowed Epstein to kill himself.” She has been a champion of women’s rights. Bloom’s practice is now 100% for the victims of sexual misconduct and she has given up representing accused men. That decision came after she found herself on the wrong side of the Weinstein story.

According to Bloom, Jeffrey frequently hypersexualized her work, controlling her clothing, hairstyle and diet. He ultimately sexually assaulted the victim on multiple occasions.

She was threatened into silence. He allegedly said, “I will burn you. I will hunt you down.” She feared for her life and that of her family and friends. She additionally suffered debilitating psychological injuries.

The search for witnesses and information is underway. Contact Marcelino@thebloom firm.com.
