Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v 1997 Chevrolet and contents seized from James Young [Elizabeth Young]; Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v The Real Property and Improvements known as 416 S. 62nd Street, Philadelphia, Pa 19143 [Elizabeth Young]

Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, Eastern District, 574 Pa 432 (Pa 2003), Saylor, CJ, Baer, Todd, Donohue, Dougherty and Wecht JJ, 25 May 2017

This US case involved the civil forfeiture of a property which had been used for drug dealing. The property owner pleaded guilty to "possession with intent to deliver" drugs to the value of less than US$80. The Commonwealth successfully petitioned to forfeit the property under the Controlled Substances Forfeitures Act - a civil procedure allowing forfeiture of "real property used or intended to be used to facilitate any violation of [the relevant drugs legislation]". The forfeiture was appealed up to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
