Issues: (1) Whether due process requires municipalities,
after seizing a vehicle in the name of civil forfeiture,
to provide the vehicle owner a prompt hearing before a
neutral judge to decide whether the municipality may,
while litigating the forfeiture, deny the owner continued possession and use of the vehicle; and (2) whether a claim alleging municipal failure to
afford a constitutional right requires a plaintiff to
plead not only the existence of a policy denying the
right but also the existence of policies denying all the
means by which the right may be afforded.
