|Docket No.||Op. Below||Argument||Opinion||Vote||Author||Term|
|16-142||6th Cir.||Mar 29, 2017||Jun 5, 2017||8-0||Sotomayor||OT 2016|
Holding: Because forfeiture pursuant to Section 853(a)(1) of the Comprehensive Forfeiture Act of 1984 is limited to property the defendant himself actually acquired as the result of the crime, that provision does not permit forfeiture with regard to Terry Honeycutt, who had no ownership interest in his brother's store and did not personally benefit from the illegal sales.
Judgment: Reversed, 8-0, in an opinion by Justice Sotomayor on June 5, 2017. Justice Gorsuch took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.
