The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals


The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals takes action only days after concerns are raised in the case of Jeffrey Epstein's death. Mr. Epstein was found dead in his jail cell on Saturday, August 10, 2019. His death occurred less than a day after a trove of court documents was made public- documents that implicated many rich and powerful men from social circles frequented by Mr. Epstein. Those concerned include former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and scientist Richard Stallman. Mr. Epstein was alleged to have offered testimony against other men of influence, claiming that may have also been involved in sexual offences. In an unrelated but similar case, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order to remand the case of Kelly Patrick Riggs. Mr. Riggs, a former volunteer police officer, served as an informant in The Northern District of Alabama. He is a father who was motivated by the uptick of drug overdoses that plagued his community in 2009. Local authorities contributed the overdoses to a mixture on Methamphetamine and opiates. The investigation implicated a number of influential people, as did the Epstein case. Mr. Riggs was asked to change his statement to include people whom he didn't know- he adamantly refused. Later, Mr. Riggs' vehicle was destroyed by what was suspected to be an incendiary device in his driveway, only minutes after he exited from it. A ye
