So Aitken is going back to court

Not only should his conviction be thrown out, the prosecutors and judge involved should face whatever consequences can be found. Can't fire the judge as he's already been fired, but the prosecutors, yeah. Can he file a civil suit? Don't know; I'm sure his lawyer is finding out.

One part of the article that sticks out:
The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office and former Superior Court Judge James J. Morley both said that Aitken's defense team did not present enough evidence at trial to support the moving exemption. Although the jury asked to see the exemption on three separate occasions, Morley refused.
So you prevent the jury seeing the information, and then say the defense 'didn't present enough evidence'; that passes for 'justice' in New Jersey.
