The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to consider whether two professional gamblers can pursue a lawsuit against a Drug Enforcement Administration officer after their winnings were confiscated by him at an airport.
On August 8, 2006, Gina Fiore and Keith Gipson were switching planes in Atlanta following a gambling trip when they were detained by several DEA agents. The gamblers were carrying a total of $97,000 in cash.
The agents - including Anthony Walden, the only one identified by name and the only one involved in the Supreme Court case - seized the cash based on the suspicion that it may have been connected to drug transactions.
