((THE 2002 SALT LAKE CITY WINTER OLYMPICS CLOSED ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO BUT THE DRAMA SURROUNDING THE GAMES DID NOT END UNTIL FRIDAY. THAT'S WHEN A JUDGE RULED PROSECUTORS HAD INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO PROVE BRIBERY RACKETEERING, FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY CHARGES AGAINST THE TWO MEN RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING THE GAMES TO SALT LAKE CITY. U.S. DISTRICT COURT JUDGE DAVID SAM GRANTED A DEFENSE MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE AGAINST TOM WELCH, THE ONE-TIME PRESIDENT OF THE SALT LAKE CITY BID AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES AND HIS DEPUTY, DAVE JOHNSON.

"i felt that if we got chance to tell our story, which we haven't had, that it would be evident to everyone that there was no crime and that we had conducted ourselves in a professional manner during the bid process. and it was worth it to me to face the consequences."

"as i look at the olympic saga that hopefully closes today, i certainly wouldn't have done it had i known the terrible price that we'd pay as a family."
THOUGH ACQUITTED, WELCH AND JOHNSON WERE THE PUBLIC FACES OF A SCANDAL THAT DID ALTER THE COURSE OF OLYMPIC HISTORY. AFTER IT WAS REVEALED THAT A MILLION DOLLARS IN CASH AND GIFTS WAS LAVISHED ON INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE DELEGATES DURING UTAH'S CAMPAIGN FOR THE GAMES, THE IOC FINALLY DID SOMETHING ABOUT A LONGSTANDING TRADITION OF PAYOFFS. TEN IOC MEMBERS EITHER RESIGNED OR WERE EXPELLED. AND CHANGES IN THE RULES WERE IMPLEMENTED. NOW IOC MEMBERS ARE PROHIBITED FROM EVEN VISITING CITIES BIDDING FOR THE GAMES.
"I think as you look at the trial, as you look at the scandal, hopefully we'll learn from the process...maybe the process itself, the debate, about the olympics, the struggle of having them, even the scandal...will make us kinder, will make us maybe a little more gentle as people, and if it that does then what we've been through is worth it."
