USVI unable to locate Google co-founder to issue summons

FEDERIKSTED, St Croix, USVI- Where is Lawrence E. Page aka 'Larry'? That’s what prosecutors in the US Virgin Islands (USVI) want to know, as they say the Google co-founder cannot be located in order to be served with a subpoena.

The territory has already handed a subpoena to fellow Google cofounder Sergey Brin, as it seeks information about JP Morgan’s relationship with deceased sex offender Jeffrey E. Epstein. Reports are that the VIDOJ believes that Mr Epstein “may have referred or attempted to refer” Mr Page to JP Morgan, according to a motion filed in court last week. 

However, after several attempts, process servers have been unable to locate Mr Page to hand him the required court documents. The [US] Virgin Islands government says that it hired private investigators to try to track down the billionaire, who Business Insider reported last year may own two private islands in the territory. 

Those attempts at finding Mr Page were futile, as the addresses identified by the investigative firm turned out not to be valid, according to documents before the court. Now, the territory wants the court to agree that the tech billionaire can be served by alternative means, including via email. 

Discovery in the lawsuit filed by the USVI against banking behemoth JP Morgan is due to end this month. The territory claims that the bank knew, or should have known, about its long-time client’s sex trafficking enterprise, and turned a blind eye towards financial transactions that may have arisen from, or facilitated, Mr Epstein’s criminal activities.
