Comments on: Behind the Gibson Guitar raid, cont’d http://overlawyered.com/2014/06/gibson/ Chronicling the high cost of our legal system Tue, 31 Mar 2015 11:01:33 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.1 By: Ben Catoe http://overlawyered.com/2014/06/gibson/comment-page-1/#comment-288806 Tue, 03 Jun 2014 03:38:54 +0000 http://overlawyered.com/?p=46198#comment-288806 Aside from the other 30 problems with how Gibson was treated in this, I think the SWAT style raid is the most troubling. The only reason to do it that way is intimidation. Sealed warrants and endless stalling from the feds so Gibson could not get their day in court are also at the top of the list. How can we get anyone to be held accountable for such things?

I was sorry to see Gibson give up the fight but I certainly understand why they did.

Seems while the UK has rolled back a lot of of that rubbish, the US has gone other other way. Shame.
