Civil forfeiture is dead or weakened

Civil forfeiture is dead, says the US Supreme Court, but it will continue to writhe and bite in Alabama. That’s my guess.

Curtailing civil forfeiture is a focus of Alabama Arise which has the support of Humanists of North Alabama through our representative Stan Brockway,who proposed a focus on that issue to Arise last fall.
