US v. Huntington Nat'l. Bank, 08-1729

In an action by a lender seeking to recover assets from a borrower that were seized by the government, a ruling for the government is reversed where the lender preserved its argument that it was a bona fide purchaser by stating the issue to the district court with sufficient clarity to give the court and opposing parties notice that it was asserting the issue.
