    WA state's self-defense reimbursement provision under attack

    Looks like the Legislature may try to erase protections for the law-abiding citizen who acts in self-defense.
    Under RCW 9A.16.110, if you claim self-defense and are prosecuted and acquitted, the state has to pick up all reasonable court costs and fees.
