19-6062 9th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether a defendant may be required to forfeit substitute property in lieu of the firearms and ammunition subject to forfeiture under 18 U.S.C. § 924(d); and (2) whether, if the substitute-asset provision of 21 U.S.C. § 853(p) is applied to a forfeiture imposed under any statute via 28 U.S.C. § 2461, the limitations of 21 U.S.C. § 853(a)—which are explicitly incorporated by § 853(p)—must be applied as well; in other words, whether, if substitute-asset forfeiture is imposed via 28 U.S.C. § 2461(c), it is limited to situations in which a defendant transfers or conceals her own property.
