Point-Counterpoint: The Role of Civil Forfeiture

Judicature Magazine, a publication of the Duke Law Center for Judicial Studies, has published an article by David Smith and Stef Cassella discussing the merits of civil forfeiture in a point/counterpoint format.  The article, which has been distributed to all federal judges, covers a number of topics related to the role that civil forfeiture plays in federal law enforcement.

Smith, a frequent critic of civil forfeiture, argues for legislative reform of the current system, while Cassella opposes changes that would weaken civil forfeiture as a law enforcement tool.
