Editor's Comments of the Day

According to a press release from the offices of Gibbs Houston Pauw the INS has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit challenging its vehicle seizure practices. The settlement covers more than 1000,000 vehicles seized by the INS in the Western Region between June 10, 1989 and September 17,1999. The notice of proposed settlement requires that any objections to the proposed settlement be submitted in writing to either Robert Pauw or Lorri Shealy Unumb at the Office Immigration Litigation by November 15, 2000. Under the terms of the settlement, INS has agreed to revise the notices given to vehicle owners, adopt guidelines to insure uniform non-excessive fines, train officers on standards for probable cause, provide copies of adverse evidence to vehicle owners, render decisions in writing and provide for reconsideration of fines. A thank you to Robert Gibbs for providing notice of the settlement and for a reminder that a Constitutional right to due process does exist.
