I asked my lawyer about filing an Ex Post Facto claim. He’s all for it… but wants a five digit retainer just to START! Isn’t that excessive?

That is a large amount of money for most registrants, but it is not excessive due to what is involved in this type of litigation. Your state will diligently fight every challenge to registration, and it has unlimited financial resources to use against you. You can expect a long protracted battle, and if you should be granted relief, the state will almost certainly appeal.
