The Heavenly Court Case: What Really Happened on 19 Kislev

On the 19th day of the month of Kislev, the first Chabad Rebbe, R' Shneur Zalman, was released from prison in 1798. It is said that his trial was the result of a parallel case in the heavenly court. What were the charges and how are we to understand the idea of heavenly prosecution altogether? What difference did the ruling make in our lives today?
R. Schneur Zalman of Liadi (Alter Rebbe), Kislev 19
