Trustee's suit challenging forfeiture order of personal items used by convicted beneficiary

US v. Monea Family Trust I, 09-3730, concerned a petition filed by a family trust and several other parties, seeking to amend a district court's order of forfeiture regarding several items of personal property, including a diamond ring, used in a money-laundering scheme by a convicted beneficiary of the trust.

In affirming the district court's denial of the petitions, the court held that the district court did not err in finding that no gift had been made as the family trust has not shown by clear and convincing evidence that the beneficiary ever relinquished ownership, dominion, and control over the diamond.
