American Amanda Knox and her Italian former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, won their appeals of their convictions in the killing of British exchange student Meredith Kercher. Here is a guide to the Italian appeal process. On what grounds did Knox and Sollecito appeal their convictions for murder, sexual assault, possession of a weapon, interfering with a crime and theft?

Lawyers are routinely vilified. Epithets abound. We are the subject of the cruelest jokes. And yet, where do people turn when they are in trouble? Whom do they go to for advice when they want to protect their rights? Who defends the indefensible? Amanda Knox was just released from an Italian prison after a four year nightmare. Without lawyers, she would still be languishing in her cell. Without lawyers fighting the good fight, our rights, our entire way of life, would devolve and… [read post]

It’s Monday, and you know what that means… time for some law links from around the world. Businesses are spending more money on in-house lawyers than hiring outside firms, according to an HBR Law Department Survey released this month. Frederick indictments should quell gang violence. CBS has Baltimore native Matthew VanDyke (at left) on film weeks after he was released from a Ghadafi-held prison in Libya. He says he went to the war-torn country “willing to kill people for freedom.” Is the… [read post]

As we await the verdict in Amanda’s case several hours from now, I am aware that if the case goes as we all hope it does there will certainly be a lot less blogging about her case and the Italian justice system.   I have been blogging about her case (and the evil Giuliano Mignini) since the beginning, and will still probably address the subject from time to time.  We need to remember that Mignini was harassing the likes of Douglas Preston back when Amanda was still on the soccer fields of her… [read post]

A belief exists that celebrities who are charged with crimes are more likely to be acquitted or gain lighter sentences compared to others.  Do you think the outcome of a trial is influenced by celebrity status? Amanda Knox I read an article examining whether celebrities were more likely to be acquitted compared to individuals who are not well known (Wong, Goodboy, Murtagh, Hackney, & McCutcheon, 2010).   The researchers studied a sample of college students who served as mock… [read post]

By Leo Gabovich As the highly publicized Amanda Knox case gears up for appeal, one can’t help but wonder about the partiality of a panel consisting of two judges and six members of the public. Though we are constantly assured that all the members of this panel will have an equal say without any one holding particular sway over the others, one would have to be completely and utterly naive to think that the empaneled judges would not strongly influence the outcome of the appeal.   To me, the entire… [read post]

First , the Casey Anthony case which almost caused Nancy Grace's head to explode . Second , Amanda Knox's verdict was shown on The Today show this morning where she received a welcome celebration.
