I was traveling through a nullsec system in my blockade runner. Warped to a gate and got stuck in a warp bubble. Since my ship was not decloaked and the neuts could not find me, I was able to slowly align to a planet and warped to 0. As soon as I arrived at the planet, still cloaked, I logged off and head to work.

Came back later and found my active clone back in RENs and a killmail showin my blockade runner destroyed and my toon podded by neuts.

Is this game mechanic and the kill was rightful? Or am I qualified to petition for reimbursement? I was cloaked the whole time from the moment I landed in the bubble to the moment I warped away and logged off.

You warped to a bubble and probably tried to warp out from there, getting yourself agression. Then you logged off which decloaks you. You had a 15 minute timer from agression so they had plenty of time to probe you down and kill you.

In other words, you shouldn't have tried to warp out while still in the bubble, or you shouldn't have logged off but just stayed cloaked.

You are not because your ship was destroyed by players.

Alternatively, they managed to scan you down and kill you within the 1 minute you remain in space after logging off.

(What you seem to be missing is that the process of logging off automatically decloaks you).

In either case it is a legitimate kill, and if it was the 1 minute case, a pretty masterful too.

Don't log off at a planet, the e-warp would leave you so close to it, that one probe scan at minumum range would get you 100%.

Yeah, never log out from a planet.
Odds are they used the directional scanner to figure out you were at a planet.
and scanned you down with probes.

You should have created a book mark while in warp. Warped back to the book mark and just left your client logged in with the cloak active.

Or jumped to an empty system. used the same trick and logged off.
