Its important to note that even the best PCB manufacturers out there make
mistakes.  We had to recently scrap an entire lot of
16-layer boards from TYCO (one of the premier MIL PCB manufacturers in the
world) because a hole wasn't thru-plated.
It was their fault and they had to remanufacturer the entire lot (if I
remember correctly it was about a $100,000 order)

Your friend should have contacted ExpressPCB and asked for a replacement
board.  Heck, i made a stupid mistake once on an
ExpressPCB order (I had a mistake on the solder mask layer) and they
actually gave me replacement boards free of charge - even
though it was my mistake.
