In U.S. v. $29,000, a man traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles was stopped by DEA agents at an airport. When asked to consent to a search of his bag, he agreed. From the bag, the agents seized approximately $29,000 in cash. Attorney Dudley provided some, but by no means definitive, documentary evidence to the government demonstrating that his client had lawfully earned the money through gambling in Las Vegas. To avoid extended litigation of the claim, government counsel agreed to a quick settlement of the matter for half of the seized currency.
