Statement from Vikrant Reddy in Response to the Supreme Court’s Ruling on Excessive Fines

Civil asset forfeiture violates individual civil liberties and creates perverse incentives for law enforcement, turning them into revenue collectors. Ideally, states should end civil asset forfeiture and restore due process protections to their citizens.”
