West died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.


Supreme Court says no to excessive government penalties

SCOTUS limits rights of gov''t to demand excessive penaltiesOver at least the last 10 years, government prosecutors have become increasingly focused on imposing the maximum consequences on individuals who violate the law. When seeking to impose monetary sanctions or forfeiture of assets, the government has expanded its view of what constitutes the proceeds of wrongdoing and has not hesitated to make wrongdoers pay.

Many have applauded this seemingly limitless reach of the government power since it only impacted wrongdoers. Few individuals have the resources to challenge whether the government’s expansion of its power is justified under our laws. Recently, however, two individuals did challenge the government, and the Supreme Court concluded that the government had gone too far. We should all applaud the Supreme Court’s recognition that even the government is bound by the limits of the law.
