Charges brought by a prosicuter for a crime,  not much chance.

Attorney's fees!


That's often quite a chunk of cash!


And how about id you win a civil case? Can you go after the idiot that came after you with a 1-800-Attack dog lawyer?

not criminal.  civil, sure.  not  just for malicious prosecution.  when you get divorced, if the plaintiff gets a default (i.e., defendant doesn't answer wiithin the time allotted) attorneys fees can be taxed to the plaintiff.  attorneys fees are commonly awarded as part of the compensation given to a plaintiff.  of course, you probably won't get them if you lose.....
