Harry Potter and the Wrath of Lawyers
The next day
Snape was at Gringotts speaking to the bank's head Ragnock in his office.
He handed him a piece of paper.
"An order to have the Potter family will unsealed" Snape said "signed by every member of the Wizengamot and the Minister of Magic himself!"
Ragnock spent 2 minutes checking his validity. He then nodded and left. Half of an hour later he returned with a piece of paper.
He handed it to Snape and said "the Potter family will!"
Snape checked it and said "just what I thought!"
At the Wizengamot
Minister Fudge was presiding over the case.
"Dumbledore" he said "you have been found guilty of overceeding your authority and dismissing the Potters Will! What do you have to say about yourself?"
'It was for the Greater Good' was the only defence Dumbledore had. He was then stripped of all of his titles and fined 100 galleons for each year Harry had to suffer at the Dursleys which was in total 600 galleons. He had to cash in all of his favours just to keep his job as Headmaster and his every move would be monitored.
Minutes after the case of Harry's guardianship the only 2 who had a case in the matter was Edgeworth and a family called the Weasleys.
After 2 hours Fudge made his decision
"Even though we would have the problem of the Boy-Who-Lived being raised by a muggle and being in another country we have allowed Mr Edgeworth to have custody of Mr Potter provided he lets Harry be schooled in Hogwarts!"
"Gladly Mr Fudge" Edgeworth said
As for the Dursley trial-needless to say there was not a hope for the Dursleys.
Everyone in the neighbourhood and Dudley & Harry's teachers testified against them. Harry even managed to use his courage to testify. Dudley's friends badly lied to the court and it did more harm than good and Aunt Marge saying Potter deserves much worse punishment pretty much killed the slim chance the Dursleys had.
Both Petunia & Vernon were sentenced to 20 years of prison. Dudley was forced to attend s.t. Brutus. He was put in a foster home. His foster parents were fair, kind and very strict and refused to tolerate Dudley's bullying, tantrums and trying to hit their children Max & Sarah.
A few years later Harry's Hogwarts letter came and via portkey managed to get to Britain in order to get his stuff and be able to attend Hogwarts.
In the train as Harry entered a toad came across to his feet. He picked it up and went to the nearest compartment.
He saw a boy and a bushy haired girl. "Do you know who this toad belongs to?" he asked.
"Trevor!" the boy said happily as Harry handed him it.
"Thanks" the boy said "I'm Neville Longbottom!"
"Hermione Granger!" the girl said.
Harry sat down.
"Harry Edgeworth!" he said.
"I read about you!" Hermione said "your dad is the most ruthless prosecutors in Japan 2nd only to Manfred Von Karma..."
"Don't believe the fiction those rumours provide" Harry said "father may have the reputation of a ruthless man who will do anything to get a guilty verdict out of the defendant but trust me he is really a man constantly searching for the truth and will do anything to find it!"
On the train ride they came across a rude redhead called Ron Weasley who blatantly tried to befriend Harry once he saw the scar and a pale haired boy called Draco Malfoy. Harry had them leave and had to use force when he saw the Weasel was too stupid to get it.
Once the train stopped the 1st years were guided by a teacher called Professor McGonagall.
They came across the Dinner Hall and were to be sorted by the Sorting Hat.
After the Hat had sung a song the sorting began. Harry noticed on the teacher's table. Harry smiled at Snape who he remembered helped save him from the Dursleys. He could swear Snape winked at him. He saw Dumbledore and remembered him as the idiot who sent him there in the 1st place. Dumbledore tried to twinkle in his direction and tried to use his grandfatherly frown when he saw Harry glaring at him wondering if he asked Franziska nicely enough he will whip him really hard.
Harry did not pay attention to the Sorting until he saw Hermione being sorted in Ravenclaw and Neville in Hufflepuff.
Professor McGonagall was reading out the names and the hall broke out in whispers when she came to "Harry Potter-Edgeworth"
"The Harry Potter?"
"I heard the muggle who adopted him sent innocent men to prison!"
Harry ignored them as the Hat was put on him.
Hmm where should I put you Mr Potter...
" OBJECTION! It's Edgeworth now!" Harry told the hat before realising he was spending too much time with Phoenix.
You act before you think which means Gryffindor is out. A stickler for the rules. Your father would be disappointed though your mother would be delighted...
"Look I am sure Mr & Mrs Potter were good people and loved me very much but family is more than just blood" Harry firmly told the hat "Miles Edgeworth, Phoenix Wright, Gumshoe & Maya Fey are my family!"
You made your point clear Mr Pot-Edgeworth. Let's see you are only loyal to people who you know you can trust so Hufflepuff is out! You show qualities that Salazar Slytherin prized in his favourite students and you have the first for knowledge Rowena Ravenclaw had. Better be...
"RAVENCLAW!" the Hat shouted to the surprise of the students. Harry joined Hermione at the Ravenclaw table. He then looked at the rest of the sorting. Soon when Weasley was sorted he was put in Slytherin much to his shock, displeasure and Harry's delight.
The Ravenclaw prefect Penelope Clearwater and Harry started sharing stories about being raised by Edgeworth, Phoenix and Gumshoe.
Sorry to make this a short story but the next chapter will be the last and kind of an epilogue!
