Courts - More on: SCOTUS looks at asset-forfeiture hearings, in a review of a 7th Circuit opinion

Updating this ILB entry from Oct. 14, check out this entry today in The Volokh Conspiracy. This is the Chicago case where the 7th Circuit ruled that the Constitution requires owners "to get a more timely chance to reclaim their property." It is now on appeal before the SCOTUS and the State of Indiana, via AG Zoeller, has joined a brief on behalf of Petitioner, arguing that the 7th Circuit's decision requiring that owners receive a more timely chance to reclaim their property should be reversed. For additional links, see the end of the Oct. 14th ILB entry.
