Hellmann ordered new analyses of the DNA tests by independent experts — a request that was refused, for no particular reason, during the original trial. There have been indications that the readings on the knife and the bra clasp will be ruled too weak to satisfy international forensics guidelines. If this is what the independent experts conclude, the Knox team anticipates a full acquittal.
If Judge Hellmann decides to acquit, he will not only defy the judge of the first trial, but also the judges who concluded that Guede, Knox and Sollecito acted together. The system is designed to thwart such embarrassments.

American college student Amanda Knox won a big legal victory in the appeal of her Italian murder conviction today when court appointed DNA experts concluded that some of the DNA evidence used to convict her may have been contaminated.
As for the cartwheels [at the police station], her mother told the Guardian earlier this year that was "Amanda just being Amanda": it was the early hours of the morning; she was stiff. Her younger sister, Deanna, recounted on another occasion how Knox was prone to gauche behaviour in public.
an older male detective claimed that, upon returning with detectives to the murder scene, Knox had spontaneously broken into a seductive, hip-rolling dance, popularized in old Italian sex comedies, called La Mossa. Knox, the detective claimed, had shimmied her hips like Monica Vitti, shouting "Hoopla!"
