The acquittal had cleared the decks for Jayalalithaa to become Chief Minister again. Swamy is the original complainant in the case.

He had filed a case in 1996 against Jayalalithaa alleging that during her tenure as Chief Minister from 1991 to 1996, she amassed properties disproportionate to her known sources of income.
