Amanda Knox Retrial Begins in Italy

U.S. student Amanda Knox went on trial again for the murder of her roommate opened in Italy on Monday, but she was not in court.

Italy's highest court ordered a new trial for Knox and her former Italian boyfriend, overturning their acquittals in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher with a harsh assessment of an appeals court acquittal in 2011. The Court of Cassation said the acquittal was full of "deficiencies, contradictions and illogical" conclusions.

    That is a description of the entire Italian legal system. To call their courts 'kangaroo courts' is a grave insult to marsupials.
