Principal Benjamin Gluck was quoted in a Los Angeles Times update on the U.S. Private Vaults government seizure case. Mr. Gluck is representing scores of vault-holders and has recovered well over $25 million for his clients. Almost a year after the government’s search and seizure of the vaults, the government has now revealed that it gave the company owners immunity from criminal charges in return for their withdrawal of a request that their customers’ seized property be returned.
Mr. Gluck criticized the plea deal as reflecting “the constitutional and moral bankruptcy of the U.S. attorney’s office by showing that they’re willing to give immunity to an admitted criminal so long as he doesn’t interfere with their illegal scheme to seize money from innocent box holders.”
Mr. Gluck has been a lead challenger against the government’s seizure and has been featured in numerous news reports about it in local and national media.
