Duquesne Law Review


Steven M. Regan


The United States Supreme Court held that Procedural Due Process does not entitle an owner of property forfeited under a state nuisance abatement statute to a defense that the property was used for an illegal purpose without the property owner's knowledge or consent, and also held that a state is not required to pay just compensation to an innocent co-owner of property for his or her interest in property seized pursuant to a constitutionally sound abatement scheme.

Bennis v. Michigan, 116 S. Ct. 994 (1996).
