Payment of Costs and Attorneys' Fees From the Assets Forfeiture Fund—Procedure

In non-forfeiture cases, the United States Attorney's Office should follow any procedures established by the Executive Office for United States Attorneys regarding notification of pending settlements or adverse judgments. The Fund and Fund allocations are not available to fund EAJA awards in non-forfeiture cases. Therefore, the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section should not be notified of actions in non-forfeiture cases.
