Duquesne Law Review


The Supreme Court of the United States held that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment requires a state or its local entities to provide notice that property was seized during a criminal investigation, but does not require a state to provide specific instructions or advice to owners who seek the return of property that was lawfully seized but no longer needed for police investigation or criminal prosecution.
