Attorney General Eric Holder speaks at a news conference on Nov. 13, 2014. On Friday, he announced that local and state police may no longer use federal law to seize cash, cars and other property without evidence that a crime occurred. It was the most sweeping check on police power to confiscate personal property since the seizures began three decades ago as part of the war on drugs.
