Despite Jeffrey Epstein’s death, federal prosecutors say they’ll continue to investigate and move forward with his case. Epstein had been charged with trafficking girls as young as 14 for sex. Prosecutors say they’ll now turn their attention to others in Epstein’s circle who may have helped him recruit and abuse them.

Also, a conservative activist group is suing California over its first-in-the-nation law that requires at least one woman to sit on the boards of publicly traded companies headquartered in the state. 

And California’s effort to automate voter registration through the DMV is facing another scandal. The LA Times reports that the DMV offices produced more than 80,000 duplicate voter records.
