Omidi v. US, 15-55667

In an asset forfeiture case arising out the government's seizure of $100 million from bank accounts controlled by plaintiffs as proceeds of criminal activity and subject to forfeiture under 18 U.S.C. section 981, the district court's denial of plaintiff's motion for return of seized funds under the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 (CAFRA), 18 U.S.C. section 983(a)(1)(F), is affirmed over plaintiffs' argument that the government did not provide the notice required by section 983(a)(1)(A) of CAFRA within 60 days of the seizure, where section 983(a)(1)(A) did not apply to this case because the provision limits the applicability of the 60-day notice deadline to 'nonjudicial' civil forfeiture proceedings, and this case involved judicial forfeiture proceedings.
