No pretrial restraint. The Second Circuit has decided that 28 U.S.C. 2461(c), part of the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000, does not authorized pretrial restraint of assets that the government claims are subject to criminal forfeiture. The decision in United States v. Razmilovic can be found here.
