This is completely off-topic, even having read the entire 
document, but the assumptions here seem unjustified.

The defendant (as far as my limited legal knowledge goes) 
paid her legal council the sum of $100,000 give or take.

She gets $68,000 reimbursed by the courts.

So isn't she in fact $22k worse off than if the case never 
took place?
