21. Sounds like the defense lawyer did ok - and maybe he thought he had the
best chance of getting him off with the First Amendment argument. The whole thing sounds fishy, though, and I wouldn't be taking any of my computers back to that shop.

As for the $300, that's about right. The attorney needs to call the clerk to get a copy of the order of dismissal and if there is a way to "expunge" that would require paperwork as well. We have a family attorney and he is $250 an hour - which is not outrageous. Corporate attorneys are much more expensive.

What an ordeal for you both to go through though. Really sucks - since the facts as you describe them leave a lot of questions as to whether your nephew even owned the pics in the first place. Could just as easily have been an employee at Restronics.
