US v. Real Property Located at 17 Coon Creek Rd., Hawkins Bar, CA

In a case involving the civil forfeiture of real property, the district court's default judgment and final judgment of forfeiture, entered after the court granted the government's motion to strike Pickle's claim and answer based on Pickle's failure to respond to special interrogatories the government propounded pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure's Supplemental Rules for Admiralty or Maritime Claims and Asset Forfeiture Actions G(6)(c)(i)(A), is reversed where failure to answer the Rule G(6) special interrogatories is not a per se basis for striking the claim, and such a conclusion is incorrect as a matter of law.
