Principal Benjamin Gluck was quoted again in the Los Angeles Times’s coverage of the U.S. Private Vaults forfeiture.
The article discusses the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office’s failure to disclose their plan to confiscate all cash they found at U.S. Private Vaults, therefore “misleading the judge who approved” the warrant. This echoes arguments Mr. Gluck made to the District Court, resulting in the return of Mr. Gluck’s clients’ property.
“This entire episode is a stain on the U.S. Attorney’s Office and on everyone who played a part in it,” Mr. Gluck told the Los Angeles Times. He has been at the forefront of those challenging the government’s attempts to forfeit tens of millions of dollars in cash and other valuables from U.S. Private Vaults.
U.S. Private Vaults, a private safe deposit box business in Beverly Hills, was raided by the government in March 2021. Mr. Gluck and Bird Marella have represented over 30 clients affected by the unlawful seizure – securing the return of over $25 million in seized assets. The matter has received national press coverage.
