A judge presiding over a lawsuit in relation to Jeffrey Epstein died in March as the fight continued to reveal more details about Epstein's dealings and his accusers.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Sweet died March 24 at the age of 96, according to Politico. Sweet was presiding over a lawsuit that had been filed in the wake of Epstein's plea deal won 10 years ago, in which he plead guilty to two prostitution offenses and ended up serving only 13 months in prison.
