About the Robert Everett Johnson Interview

My short bio:

Hi, I'm an attorney at the Institute for Justice--a group famously described as a "merry band of libertarian litigators." At IJ, we fight government abuse across the country.

In my latest case, I'm representing a woman who's fighting to keep the City of Albuquerque from taking her car using a process called civil forfeiture--a legal mechanism that allows law enforcement to seize and sell property without charging the owner with a crime. New Mexico passed a law abolishing civil forfeiture just last year, but law enforcement in Albuquerque are flagrantly disregarding the law and continue to seize and sell hundreds of cars each year.

Here’s more background on the case: http://ij.org/case/albuquerque-civil-forfeiture/#backgrounder
