In a December 23 article published by the New York Post, Daniel Wenner weighed in on whether virtual currencies such as bitcoins can be considered assets eligible for federal government seizure in a criminal case. Dan, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of New York, said the argument being raised by defendant Ross Ulbricht, who was accused of running the notorious illegal-drug-peddling web site Silk Road, is "very creative and cutting edge." He added, however, that he'd be "stunned" if a judge would agree that the virtual currency is not an asset covered by federal seizure law. "I think one would be hard-pressed to convince a court that something you can use to purchase goods, like bitcoins, isn't property," he said.
On March 26, D.C. Counsel Steven Cash will be featured on live webinar, "When Congress Comes Calling: Unique Rights and Wrongs for Oversight and Investigation Targets," presented by the Washington Legal Foundation (WLF).
