Prosecutors Mull Next Move In Case Against Former San Jose Mayor

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.
