Italian Scientists Acquited by Appeals Court

The CLAHRC WM Director was pleased to read that an appeals court has cleared six Italian scientists who were convicted for manslaughter in 2012. Their crime? Failing to provide adequate warning of a large earthquake that resulted in around 300 deaths and 1,500 injuries in 2009. The Director posted his thoughts on the initial conviction in a previous blog.
