United States v. Currency in Sum of Six Hundred Sixty Thousand, Two Hundred Dollars, 242 Fed. Appx. 750, 2007 WL 1959049 (2d Cir. July 2, 2007), aff’g 423 F. Supp. 2d 14 and 438 F. Supp. 2d 67 (E.D.N.Y. 2006).

The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirmed two District Court Memorandum Decisions granting a motion against the United States government to enforce the settlement of a civil forfeiture matter and awarding attorneys’ fees under the Equal Access to Justice Act because the government, in reneging on the settlement, took a position that was not “substantially justified”.
