Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 1999 effective August 23 2000

• established that in order to seize assets, the government must prove that property is related to a crime, as opposed to property owners' having to prove that their property is "innocent"

• created an "innocent owner defense,'' whereby property owners who are either unaware of or unsuccessfully try to stop criminal activity on their property can recover the property

• eliminated the cost-bond requirement, which previously required property owners to pay $5,000 or 10 percent of the seized property's value to contest seizure in court

• provided compensation for property damage caused by federal agents and extended the time for filing a claim to contest a forfeiture
