Professor Robert Weisberg is quoted in an Associated Press story about the dismissed case against the former mayor of San Jose:

Robert Weisberg, a professor at Stanford Law School, said despite the strongly worded ruling, the case "is not even close to the line of what you'd call a malicious prosecution" that could result in misconduct charges.

Weisberg said prosecutors could stumble if they take the case back to a grand jury based on the same legal theories, and might also have a hard time convincing an appeals court to reverse the decision.

"I think there's a good chance that the case stops here, unless there are new facts that have been recently discovered that strengthen the case," he said.
