I'm not a lawyer but his is how I understand things.
There is nothing that can prevent BG or his relatives from filing a law suit. Unlike a criminal trial where there must be proof beyond a reasonable doubt, in civil court there must be a preponderance of evidence to win.

Technically it is possible to be found not guilty in a criminal trial only to be held liable in a civil trial. OJ Simpson is an example of this.
