Watching the US Supreme Court

This week, I had the honor of watching the United States Supreme Court in action with Timbs v. Indiana. At stake is whether states can seize property connected to crimes with no regard to cost. The State of Indiana argued that the law allows seizure of even the most expensive automobile if a driver goes so much as 5 mph over the speed limit. The Supreme Court seemed to take umbrage at this thought. 

It’s likely the Court will render a decision in June.  For more information on this important case, check out the following media coverage.
