Government Strikes Out Yet Again Against SLAM
A U.S. District Court has denied the Government's Second Motion for Reconsideration of a decision to throw out a forfeiture case against an Egyptian funerary mask that has been on display at the St. Louis Art Museum for years. I'm not sure what the Government hoped to accomplish by seeking reconsideration of the Court's dismissal order for a second time. Perhaps, it was a tactical move to give the Government more time to consider an appeal.
