Asset Forfeiture Reform Signed into Law in Nebraska

Federal courts can't be trusted to protect innocent property owners

The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has failed to uphold one of the most basic principles of the American legal system by allowing the forfeiture of more than $63,000 of cash to the government. The decision could have serious ramifications for innocent property owners in the Midwest.
