Earthquake prediction can be a grave, and faulty science, and in the case of Italian seismologists who are being tried for the manslaughter of the people who died in the 2009 L'Aquila quake, it can have legal consequences. The group of seven, including six seismologists and a government official, reportedly didn't alert the public ahead of time of the risk of the L'Aquila earthquake, which occurred on April 6 of that year, killing around 300 people, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The decision to try the six members of a committee tasked with determining the risk of an earthquake in the area (along with a government official) was announced on Wednesday (May 25) by Judge Giuseppe Romano, according to a news article from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Wow this is nuts...Yet that nut job who falsely predicted a rapture which led to people's death goes free. HE should be in jail!

I guess they went after the scientist, can't go after mother nature...oh but wait someone will one day.

All I can say is Judge Giuseppe Romano is an absolute clown! His court is joke. He should be removed from his position for stupidity! Does he think they are Physic? He obviously lacks basic science skills! Earthquakes cannot be predicted! He thinks he is a suitable person to run a court? Bahahahahah! Talk about tying up the legal system!

sorry for the language: this is total bull#. they stand accused because, despite a period of warning quakes and panic in the population, they assured that people could sleep in their homes and there was no danger. they even accused the seismologist who suggested to flee, of scaremongering. without their suggestions, lots of people could be still alive. they should go to prison and pay for their errors.
