Here is a case of a recently vindicated convict. He was convicted of murder, and served many years in jail. His case was remanded, and dismissed on the basis that there was insufficient evidence that the child who died was murdered; it may have been an accident. It is said in the news article that the vindicated plaintiff has a legal malpractice law suit. Issues are statute of limitations and whether California law requires a demonstration of innocence or simply that the conviction was reversed. Details.
