In United States v. Ursery, the United States Supreme Court evaluated the constitutionality of in rem civil forfeitures when they are used with criminal proceedings in relation to a single act. Ursery was a consolidation of two cases, United States v. Ursery and United States v. $405,089.23 United States Currency, from the Sixth and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals, respectively.
