Power Grab: The DOJ’s New Forfeiture Policy for Criminal Defendants
Co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society, Cleveland–Marshall College of Law, Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association and the Federal Bar Association.
The panel discussion will examine the Department of Justice’s aggressive new policy for taking property from criminal defendants. It will feature panelists from diverse ideological backgrounds, including panelists from the Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and the American Civil Liberties Union. The event will look at a controversial, but little-known change in DOJ policy that threatens to raise the stakes and complicate proceedings for criminal defendants, and thus for the attorneys representing them.
Ned Searby will moderate the discussion among a panel including:
Gary Daniels | ACLU of Ohio
Clark Neily | Cato Institute
Jason Snead | Heritage Foundation
