A case that should never have been brought is now over.

Now, about that Civil suit…

Update: via the NYT:

A jury in West Texas took less than an hour Thursday to acquit a nurse who had been charged with a felony after anonymously complaining to the state medical board that a doctor at her hospital was practicing unsafe medicine. The prosecution had ignited deep concern among health care workers and advocates for whistle-blowers about the potential chilling effect of a conviction.

Less than an hour.

Update: more coverage of the acquittal:
