Due Process Imperiled?
After considering the matter for over six (6) months, the Hon. Catherine C. Blake has denied the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild's Motion for Reconsideration of a decision striking the Guild's Amended Answer in a short, three sentence order. This decision once again raises the prospect that the congressionally mandated burden of proof found in CPIA Section 2610 has been judicially reassigned from the government to the Guild. If so, the Guild's due process rights are being imperiled, something that should be a concern to us all.
