THERE GOES your conspiracy against the heroic judge by Franco supporters blah blah blah:
An embattled superstar judge known for taking on high-profile international human rights cases was acquitted Monday on charges of overstepping his jurisdiction by launching an investigation into right-wing atrocities during and after the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War.

Baltasar Garzon misinterpreted Spanish law but did not knowingly and arbitrarily violate the limits of his jurisdiction, as would be required for a conviction, the Supreme Court justices said in their 6-1 vote and 63-page ruling.
