66 F.3d 336
UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,
Daniel John KEEFER, Defendant-Appellant.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Argued and Submitted Aug. 10, 1995.
Decided Sept. 12, 1995.
NOTICE: Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3 provides that dispositions other than opinions or orders designated for publication are not precedential and should not be cited except when relevant under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel.
Before: THOMPSON, LEAVY, and TROTT, Circuit Judges.
Daniel John Keefer appeals from the district court's denial of his motion to dismiss the superseding indictment, arguing that a prior civil administrative forfeiture proceeding bars his subsequent criminal prosecution on double jeopardy grounds. Double jeopardy did not attach to the instant prosecution because Keefer made no claim to any property in the civil forfeiture proceeding, see United States v. Cretacci, --- F.3d ----, ----, No. 94-10235, slip op. 9565, 9568 (9th Cir. Aug. 4 1995), and because, as to part of the property involved, there was no finality to the prior proceeding, see United States v. Sanchez-Cobarruvias, --- F.3d ----, ----, No. 94-50581, slip op. ----, ---- (9th Cir. Sept. 12, 1995). We find Keefer's remaining arguments meritless.
This disposition is not suitable for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this Circuit except as provided by 9th Cir.R. 36-3
