Holloway Update

The B'ham news reports that Aruba may prosecute the Kalpoes and Joran van der Sloot. No indication if that is because they have actually found some evidence, or if they have just gotten sick of listening to Beth Twitty.

If you want to read the civil complaint and the motion to disimiss, they are here. (Hat tip Appellate Law and Practice).

My guess is the New York judge will dismiss it. Like the motion says, New York has no interest whatsoever in the case. The incidents occured in another country and not a single party is a resident of New York.
