Perhaps federal defendants should consider taking the name "64,695 pounds of skark fins" . . .

Sharksandwich. . . because, as detailed in a case handed down today, US v Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins, No. No. 05-56274 (9th Cir. Mar. 17, 2008) (available here), over 32 tons of shark fins managed to prevail with a due process claim in a civil forfeiture case in the Ninth Circuit.  I wonder what David St. Hubbins might think about this ruling.
