Are owners of “The Hump”, the sushi restaurant caught in February serving endangered whale meat, getting away with only a slapped wrist?

That’s the word coming out of an AP report which says that Federal prosecutors have moved to dismiss charges; though no motive behind the decision was given. If they had been convicted, the owners were looking at fines of $200,000 and almost a year in Federal prison. The story, however, isn’t over. From the article,

U.S. attorney’s office spokesman Thom Mrozek said Wednesday that prosecutors want charges dismissed without prejudice, meaning they could be refiled in the future.

Which I guess is akin to saying “don’t do it again or else”?

Either way, the city of Santa Monica has made it clear that “The Hump” will not be re-occupying its former space — through it’s unclear whether the owners would ever try to relaunch with the same disgraced name. It’s rumored that Sea Shepherd supporter Ady Gil has expressed interest in the vacant spot for a vegan restaurant.
