seizure laws

Last week, on 7 Days in Santa Fe Eric Zipf and I were discussing Sheriff Greg Solano's proposal to have the county pass an ordinance to seize the cars of drunk drivers. I said, with a bit of confusion (hey, we tape at 8:30 am) that I thought there were constitutional questions pending regarding such seizure laws. Anyway, the courts just struck down Albuquerque's seizure laws so I guess this is something SF should consider before it passes one of its own.
Hey, it's 5:30 and I'm out of here. Probably won't sleep tonight wondering if our story is going to be in the dailies tomorrow. Morning will tell.
