Abstract:

SCOPE:

A review of limitations imposed upon impoundment and disposition of personal property and, without attempting to resolve evidentiary problems, to discuss common types of personal property used as evidence in judicial or administrative proceedings. Attention will be given to an analysis of methods of determining ownership, with a brief study of the feasibility of granting the military more authority in this area; and to make a practical analysis of potential public and private liability for damage to or loss of impounded property.

The end product of this thesis is intended to provide a useful survey and consolidation of statutory, regulatory and judicial provisions in the field and to suggest guidelines and procedures for future actions of those persons involved in the impounding process.
