The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Luis v. United States, docket number 14-419. The case concerns the government’s ability to freeze a defendant’s assets, even those unrelated to criminal activity, at the pretrial stage prohibiting a defendant from having the money needed to hire a lawyer of their choice.

On March 30, 2016, the court ruled 5-3 that the Sixth Amendment forbids the government from freezing assets not related to criminal activity when criminal defendants need those funds to pay for an attorney. close
