Andrea Vogt, who spoke to our class last month, filed a story for The Week, a British news magazine about a new legal development in the Amanda Knox case. The family of Meredith Kercher, the British student who died under mysterious circumstances in 2007, has asked the Supreme Court of Italy to overturn Knox’s acquittal.

Meanwhile, the New York Times reported this week on a potential bidding war among publishers for the rights to publish Knox’s story.  Interesting, the Times used an anonymous source in its report:

“The book will have very broad resonance,” said an executive whose publishing house is among the bidders. “The world has heard from everybody else, but the world has not actually heard from Amanda Knox.”
