He was arrested and charged with a crime March 26, 2007. Criminal charges were dropped September 3, 2008. The Federal suit was settled july 28, 2009 probably at which time he received his property back.
I wonder if he "notified" the cop that he had those handguns...
Answer- you'll notice the defendant is never wrong and has not violated any civil rights.

I just pm'd JRM to ask him about it. It looks like an interesting subject.
JRM didn't have a lot to say about the case other than "...It was such an out of the ordinary case, it's difficult to imagine it being useful for others. The cop had no idea what he was talking about, and still insisted it was an SBR after the GBI said it wasn't, the ATF said it wasn't, and I hired an expert witness that said it wasn't. The officer testified that what made it a rifle was the fact that it had a rifled bore! I suspect, but do not know, that when defense counsel was faced with the impossible task of finding an expert witness to rebut that, she decided to go the settlement route..."
That admission alone was made my whole interest worthwhile.
Maybe some of your'n' is smarter than ours's.
Agencies were quick to issue, for officer safety, and yours, information BOLO's stating that if you were seen carrying the AK, it is indeed a legal pistol and you did have a valid carry permit.
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
i know the settlement is not provided since its not published, but i wonder if the amount paid by the county is subject to a Georgia Open Records request.....
