Memorandum of Opinion and Order: Accordingly, the government's Motion to Strike Claim of Samson Primm (Doc. 6) is hereby GRANTED. Because Primm lacks standing, the Court need not reach his argument that the defendant currencies were unlawfully seized in violation of the Fourth Amendment or the Takings Clause. See, e.g., United States v. $57,888.00 in Currency, 2011 WL 2972106, at **2-3 (N.D.

Gaughan on 1/5/17. (LC,S) re 8 Modified on 1/5/2017 (LC,S).
