AML Conversations: Asset Forfeiture - A Conversation with Stef Cassella

Stef Cassella joins John for the record-breaking third appearance. They discuss:

  • How Stef has been assisting other countries in drafting forfeiture legislation (criminal and civil) and in training their prosecutors and judges, a recognition in countries that are used as money laundering centers that they need a means to deter foreign criminals from using their financial institutions for that purpose
  • What the congressional proposal called the “FAIR Act” would do to the civil forfeiture infrastructure and
  • Stef’s view on an upcoming Supreme Court case, Culley v. Marshall, where Plaintiffs ask the Court to recognize a right to an immediate post-seizure hearing whenever law enforcement seizes property for civil forfeiture.
