Print This

When, in any prosecution or action on account of the seizure of any vessel, vehicle, merchandise or baggage by any collector or other officer, judgment is rendered for the claimant, and it appears to the court that there was reasonable cause for seizure, the court may enter an order to that effect. The claimant is not in any such case entitled to costs, or is the person who made the seizure, or the prosecutor, liable on account of any such suit or prosecution if the vessel, vehicle, merchandise or baggage be, after judgment, forthwith returned to such claimant or his agent.
