Supreme Court Strikes down ‘Valid Cause’ Seizures in H.R. 005



Rockford Hills, San Andreas – The Supreme Court of San Andreas has struck down Valid Cause seizures saying that Section Four of H.R. 005 is unconstitutional.

Section 4 of H.R. 005 is unconstitutional in its current written form. The wording of Valid Cause might have been applicable if outlined within the bill itself, however, leaves a very open gap in the broadness of the requirements for seizure.

The Panel has then concluded to permanently injunct H.R. 005 – Section 4 – Asset Seizure, until such time that it is amended by the State Legislature.

The opinion came after Lawyer Garry Shoeman filed a judicial review in August about the language used, citing that it was a ‘major violation of the fourth amendment.’

The Legislature has already responded by introducing H.R. 167. If passed it would completely replace H.R. 005 and the amending H.R. 011 and introduce constitutionally recognised language about probable cause, instead of a ‘valid cause.’
