Split Widened: Are Pre-Trial, Post-Indictment Hearings Required When Forfeitures Implicate Defendants' Sixth Amendment Rights?

Per United States v. E-Gold, Ltd., 2008 WL 995627, *16 (D.C. Cir. Apr. 11, 2008)

I have to argue a fake case, with a closed record, on this precise issue for a class later this month. I therefore cannot read any more of this case than I already have, but wanted to flag the case as one of interest. Also from the D.C. Circuit yesterday, Judicial Watch, Inc. v. F.B.I. further enlarges the majority school on the meaning of 'prevailing party' for fee-shifting statutes, previously discussed here and here.

Have a great weekend everybody!
