Principal Benjamin Gluck was recently quoted in the Los Angeles Times in its continuing coverage of the government’s search and seizure of hundreds of safe deposit boxes from U.S. Private Vaults in Beverly Hills. Gluck currently represents a number of clients who had their property taken by federal agents during the raid in late March.
The article discusses that as reports of the seizure arise, more legal challenges surface with several customers suing the government, emphasizing that prosecutors had no right to suspect them of criminal acts. Legal scholars have concurred, characterizing the seizure as “egregious” and saying “the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles is testing constitutional restraints on the government’s power to seize private property.”
