The US Government has filed a motion to dismiss the action filed against it by Richard Chichakli, which asserts that a large portion of his valuable personal property, which was seized by US law enforcement, was lost, stolen or destroyed. The issues presented appear in the Argument below, which is taken from the Motion to Dismiss:
(1) Plaintiff exhausted the FITCA administrative procedure.
(2) This Court has proper jurisdiction over Plaintiff's Taking claim.
(3) This Court has jurisdiction over Chichakli's post-sanctions Fourth and Fifth Amendment claims.
When the court enters a ruling upon the motion, we shall update our readers accordingly.
