A VICTORY IN THE WAR AGAINST PHOTOGRAPHY:

Harrisonburg’s top prosecutor and James Madison University’s student newspaper have reached a settlement under which the state will pay $10,000 in legal fees that the paper accumulated while arguing against the seizure of staff photographs documenting a riot. . . . The Washington-based attorney for The Breeze said the most important piece of the settlement between the student newspaper and Garst was her admission that a seizure of photos wasn’t the right way to go.

“I admire the commonwealth’s attorney for her willingness to stand up and say so,” said attorney Seth Berlin.

Better late than never on that realization, I guess.
