Doe v. US


Jane Doe 1 and Doe 2 v. United States of America – Case Number 08-cv-80736

In 2008, founding partner Brad Edwards filed a lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida to enforce the rights of Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2 pursuant to the Crime Victims’ Rights Act, 18 U.S.C. Section 3771 (“CVRA”).  These Plaintiffs, along with approximately 30 other minors, were identified by the Federal Government as having been molested by Jeffrey Epstein.  They allege that the United States Attorney’s Office secretly reached a Non-Prosecution Agreement (“NPA”) with Mr. Epstein which essentially immunized Mr. Epstein from Federal criminal liability.  For nearly ten years, Mr. Edwards has litigated this case pro-bono.  For more information on this precedent setting case, the most recent, pending pleadings are available here.
