David Helps Client Recover Thousands in Seized Cash

In U.S. v. $34,000, a Jamaican citizen residing in New York City was driving through the Birmingham area of Alabama when he was stopped by a state trooper.  A search of his vehicle ensued which resulted in officers seizing $34,000 in cash.  Although the stop and search appeared on the surface to be lawful, and the driver of the car provided no plausible explanation for the source of the money, Attorney Dudley asserted that the detention was likely motivated by racial profiling.  To resolve the matter without having to litigate the profiling allegation, government counsel agreed to release half of the money as an early settlement of the case.
