George Zimmerman to file claim for legal costs
Here's the story.
I found the statute cited:
"939.06 Acquitted defendant not liable for costs.—
(1) A defendant in a criminal prosecution who is acquitted or discharged is not liable for any costs or fees of the court or any ministerial office, or for any charge of subsistence while detained in custody. If the defendant has paid any taxable costs, or fees required under s. 27.52(1)(b), in the case, the clerk or judge shall give him or her a certificate of the payment of such costs, with the items thereof, which, when audited and approved according to law, shall be refunded to the defendant."
In most jurisdictions, "taxable costs" do not include attorney's fees. They do include costs such as depositions, sometimes travel, expert fees, and some other expenses.
