The Wrong Date

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution here former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell's jury was focused on a date appearing on the indictment.  Since the alleged bribe did not occur on that exact date, some jurors told the press that they were unable to convict. Other factors also appeared to play a part in the not guilty verdict on the RICO and bribery counts.

This case will provide many law school lessons.
