John Kercher, father of Meredith Kercher, the victim in a 2007 murder expressed his displeasure over the weekend over the made for tv movie due to be shown on Lifetime this month. Amanda Knox, Ms. Kercher's roommate, and two others, have been convicted of the crime, but those verdicts are being appealed. Now comes news of a lawsuit intended to block airing of the film, filed by both the Kercher family and the Knox family. In particular, the Knoxes are worried that the film might prejudice Ms. Knox's appeal.
