Recent and Pending Decisions of the Supreme Court on Asset Forfeiture

Stef Cassella was invited to participate in an Inns of Court program in Washington DC to discuss the impact, going forward, of the Supreme Court’s recent decisions in Kaley and Luis which dealt with pre-trial restraining orders, its pending decision in Honeycutt which concerns joint and several liability in criminal forfeiture cases, and the views expressed by Justice Thomas that were critical of civil forfeiture in Leonard v. Texas.  

This is the 12-page annotated transcript of Mr. Cassella’s comments on those issues.
