Topic: Sollecito may seek compensation after Kercher murder acquittals

By Isla Binnie ROME (Reuters) - Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito may seek reparations after his second acquittal for the 2007 murder of British student Meredith Kercher brought to an end a marathon journey through Italy's justice system. The tortuous zigzag of contradictory rulings that followed Kercher's stabbing in the town of Perugia has underlined the slowness and unpredictability of Italian law, which numerous governments have failed to fix. Sollecito's lawyer Giulia Bongiorno said on Monday her client, now 31, would wait for Italy's top court to give the reasoning behind the acquittal, expected in about three months' time, before taking a decision. "We will see if any mistakes were made, what measures to take, but this is all far in the future." The American Knox and Italian Sollecito were definitively cleared last week by the Court of Cassation.
