The probate battle over sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s vast, Virgin Islands-based empire ratcheted up Tuesday with a new complaint from V.I. Attorney General Denise George, and an emergency motion from the estate’s attorneys to vacate liens George had placed on the more than $600 million in cash and properties Epstein left after his August suicide.

George has filed an amended complaint against what her office has dubbed the “Epstein Enterprise,” a network of businesses and individuals accused of helping Epstein conceal his criminal activities. The complaint was just one of a raft of documents filed Tuesday in both the Superior Court civil case, as well as the probate court proceeding that will determine the fate of the estate.
