PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man whose triple-murder conviction was overturned can sue the state of Oregon for wrongful conviction. The decision yesterday from the Oregon Court of Appeals allows Philip Cannon to go forward with a multi-million dollar lawsuit. Cannon was convicted in the 1998 killings of three people on a farm west of Salem. In 2009, he won a new trial. But the Oregon Department of Justice said it lost evidence. Prosecutors dropped the case.
