FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
[Melbourne, FL] -- e-gold Ltd is pleased to announce a favorable ruling from The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in the matter of whether it, Gold & Silver Reserve, Inc., and Directors of both corporations are entitled to a hearing in the Federal district court regarding whether there was sufficient probable cause to justify seizures of assets from the corporations in December 2005 and April 2007.
The higher court concluded:
"In short, we hold that where the government has obtained a seizure warrant
depriving defendants of assets pending a trial upon the merits, the
constitutional right to due process of law entitles defendants to an
opportunity to be heard at least where access to the assets is necessary for
an effective exercise of the Sixth Amendment right to counsel."
The complete text of the court's opinion is available here:
This ruling will ultimately prove to be beneficial to all Americans whose Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights have been increasingly encroached upon in the name of fighting domestic wars du jour - whether or not they use e-gold.
e-gold Ltd, Gold & Silver Reserve, Inc., and their Directors believe there was insufficient probable cause for the seizure warrants at issue and look forward to finally having their day in court on this matter.
