This case seems like the Italian legal system gone awry. How can scientists be held liable, especially criminally liable, for forecasting something as imprecise as earthquakes? The victims in this case are deceased so we don't even know what information, if any, they based their decisions on. This verdict now opens the door to legions of U.S. lawyers who may be comtemplating how to profit from inaccurate scientific predictions. This is a true travesty of justice if I've ever seen one.
