    Appeals, mistrials and retrials are commonplace in all jurisdictions, including the US. They do not necessarily imply double jeopardy. This is clearly not a case of DJ, and I don't believe anyone on the Knox team are claiming that it is. Also, double jeopardy is not mentioned in the US-Italy extradition treaty, unlike the death penalty.
    One of the Knox lawyers raised the DJ question in a television interview. And it will be tough to claim DJ isn't involved since she was acquitted by the appeals court.

    Not quite. The appeals court of Italy decision is not final until approved by the Court of Cassation. They did not do it, but over-ruled that judge in the end, but not before she was released and returned to the states. Thus, it was not actually overturned, nor was there double jeopardy.

    I want to thank you for these resources. Being able to go directly to the transcipts of the proceedings gave me a much better understanding of the whole case. There has been so much that has been said on both sides, that when you just go to these documents, you get the answer. For example, the statement always made that the police had abused her during hours of interrogation...well, right there near the beginning you see Amanda and all of Meredith's friends were right there at the police department together waiting there turn to be questioned...and it was really not that long compared to what has been stated. That is what caught me, if she was so tired, but had slept until 10am in the morning as she said...why tired? Or is that all the more reason to believe she had indeed been up all night, and doing what?

    Also, the friends of Meredith in the document you gave the link to from the trial, state that in the police department lobby, they were all solemn...except for Amanda and her boyfriend. They were kissing, playing, laughing....all this while Meredith was now in the morgue.....In fact...one of the girls testifys that she asked out loud where Meredith might be (where did they take her body)...and Amanda looked up....they said....and she said..."Probably in a wardrobe with a blanket over her head."

    I will continue reading, but after that....I think I can believe she was involved in the murder, and should be sent back.

    Again, thank you for these links.

    We shall see. The translation of the Italian appeals court verdict that I saw used the words "acquitted" and "not guilty." Under US law, once those words are in play there's no going back.

    She was acquitted by an appeals court, whose verdict needed ratifying by the higher court to be effective. The higher court threw out the acquittal. All a part of the same process, so no DJ. And as I pointed out, the extradition treaty makes no mention of DJ being grounds for a refusal to extradite.

    It may be part of the same process in Italy but it is not in the US. And an extradition may be refused on grounds other than those specified in the treaty.

    I wonder if you could provide any evidence or precedent to back up that claim. I don't think that's true at all.

    General "miscarriage of justice" clause.

    Read it again. No such clause exists in the treaty.

    No, but all US courts are empowered to act against a miscarriage of justice. In this case, I can easily imagine her attorney pointing out the absurdity of extradition for a crime of which she has been acquitted, and the miscarriage of justice that would represent.
