"Law enforcement sources told NBC 4 NY that Epstein is expected to appear in federal court in Manhattan on Monday". Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in NY on sex trafficking charges.
Epstein is expected to appear in federal court on Monday, NBC News reported.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Epstein has always been accused of sexual abuse.
Epstein allegedly operated an global child sex ring at his Palm Beach, Florida, mansion and 72-acre private island estate in the Caribbean.
The 2nd Circuit said records in the defamation case contained descriptions of sexual abuse by Epstein along with new allegations of sexual abuse by "numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister and other world leaders".

She has 2 kids - 1-year-old James , whose father is Andrew, and 10-year-old Leah , whose father is her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley . She and her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon , recently had a pregnancy scare on the " Teen Mom OG " show, according to TMZ .
In 2008, the federal investigation into Epstein ended after he struck a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to two state prostitution charges.
Epstein is a politically-connected hedge fund manager, who's been closely associated with former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabeth II. Rather than receive life in prison, Epstein's sentence was watered down to 13-months in Palm Beach County jail, financial settlements to multiple victims and a requirement he register as a sex offender.
Epstein, 66, has always been alleged to having assembled what the Miami Herald has called "a large, cult-like network of underage girls - with the help of young female recruiters - to coerce into having sex acts behind the walls of his opulent waterfront mansion".
The Miami Herald report includes serious accusations against one of Epstein's attorneys, Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz; Phil Keating reports from Miami.
"While the government spent untold hours negotiating the terms and implications of the non-prosecution agreement with Epstein's attorneys, scant information was shared with victims". In court filings, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified at least three dozen victims by name and referred to more than 100 other "Jane Does" who were sexually abused by Epstein, according to the Herald.
