Importer Required to Hire Customs Counsel and Customs Brokers as a Stipulation of Settlement of Mislabeling

August 2017

artifactsThe United States filed a civil complaint to forfeit thousands of ancient clay artifacts that were illegally imported by a large U.S. importer.  The imported packages that were shipped falsely described the merchandise as tile samples.  As a result, the government filed a stipulation in the settlement forfeiting the artifacts, a $3 million penalty, and an agreement to adopt internal policies and procedures governing the importation process.  Part of the settlement was to also hire outside customs counsel, customs brokers and to submit quarterly reports to the government on any cultural property acquisitions for the next eighteen months.
