    Is there a lawyer among the EG hive mind that can explain this to me? I don't get how a person can be found to have been wrongfully convicted, but fail in his bid to receive compensation for wrongful imprisonment?

    The areticle suggests that the sticking point is that "jurors could still reasonably have convicted him despite new evidence that led to his acquittal." As a matter of fact, this has shocked me so much, I am now reading through the summing up of the case. I am not smart enough to argue against the findings, but it screams bullshit to me.
