As businessman Thomas Huff – whom bought Jeffrey Epstein’s Gulfstream jet in 2019, 11 years after the latter’s first sexual offence conviction – belatedly sues due to “regret,” all he does is make a moron of himself
The old proverb “a fool and his money are easily parted” certainly applies to Cobb County, Georgia based Thomas Huff – a man whom bought Jeffrey Epstein’s Gulfstream jet in 2019 in spite of the since croaked paedophile’s 2008 conviction.
Now filing a lawsuit against Epstein’s estate on the basis that he claims the jet was used in “criminal enterprises” he claims to have known nothing of, Huff alleges that his company, JEGE LLC, has been damaged by the stigma.
In his suit, the businessman claims:
“JEGE’s customers, some of which are very well known to the public, are tracked, surveilled, and reported to the press for using, what they believed to be Jeffrey Epstein’s company.”
“Mr Epstein committed fraud by failing to disclose a material fact that could not have been known through any amount of due diligence by Thomas Huff.”
“Additionally, JEGE was not able to obtain financing, not because of credit worthiness, but because of the stigma of Jeffrey E. Epstein’s victimization of children attached to JEGE.”
“He knew or should have known that his ongoing criminal enterprise would undermine the value of JEGE if and when it was discovered… [His] lies were a breach of the duty of candor.”
Going further, Huff’s attorney, Jeff Banks, told The Daily Beast:
“It’s truly affected my client being able to use it. A lot of people track the plane, who flies on it, and of course, harass those people, and they don’t want to lease the airplane anymore. So, it’s affected his business.”
“I did reach out early to Jeffrey Epstein’s attorneys and their thought was, ‘Well, you should have known he was this terrible person.’”
“They had somebody contact me and say that if I’d done research, I could have figured out what a sleaze he was.”
