In the government's appeal from an attorney's fee award following the dismissal of the government's civil forfeiture action, the award is reversed where attorney's fees incurred in the defense of a criminal action may not be awarded in a related civil forfeiture action under the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 without regard for the stringent limitations on attorney-fee awards in criminal cases under the Hyde Amendment.
