Document No. 14. As guided by 18 U.S.C. § 985 and Rule G of the Supplemental Rules for Admiralty or Maritime Claims and Asset Forfeiture Actions, the United States filed a verified complaint in rem for forfeiture, served the complaint on all required parties, and published notice of the action. After no claim or answer was filed on behalf of the properties, the Clerk entered a default and the Court granted a default judgment pursuant to Rule 55(b)(2) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The government now moves for a decree of civil forfeiture.
