The City of Chicago’s forfeiture processes violate due process. The rules are arcane, obscure, and hard to find, and people who actually try to follow them are essentially thwarted by the CPD’s rules and failure to tell people how to do anything. Also, the City sends forfeiture notices to the residences of people in jail, and refuses to check the jail records to see if any of the notices returned involved people in jail. Gates v. City of Chicago, 2010 U.S. App. LEXIS 19940 (7th Cir. September 27, 2010)
