Civil Asset Forfeiture Update

Capitol Hill Event Cosponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Institute for Justice

HVC-200 (Capitol Visitors Center)
East Capitol Street Northeast & First St SE
Washington, DC 20004


You are cordially invited to join us for a lunchtime discussion on civil asset forfeiture reform. On January 16th Attorney General Eric Holder issued an order curbing the Department of Justice's Equitable Sharing Program. Do his reforms adequately address the concerns over the abuse of civil asset forfeiture laws? Did he go too far, or not far enough? Please join us over the lunch hour for a discussion with three experts in the field. 
  • Darpana Sheth, Attorney, Institute for Justice
  • Kanya Bennett, Legislative Counsel, American Civil Liberties Union
  • David B. Smith, Partner, Smith & Zimmerman PLLC, and former DOJ Prosecutor 
  • Bill Piper, Director, Office of National Affairs, Drug Policy Alliance

There is no cost to attend this event.

Space is limited, please RSVP to [email protected] to confirm your attendence.
