Malicious Prosecution

The Mississippi Court of Appeals decided Stratton v. Using yesterday located here.  The issue in the case was whether a compromise payment to settle a criminal prosecution later made it impossible to satisfy the standards to file a malicious prosecution suit.  The Court of Appeals ruled that the earlier compromise was not a favorable termination on the merits, and as such, the Plaintiff had not claim for malicious prosecution.
