Plaintiff United States of America filed this action for forfeiture in rem on February 23, 2007. On December 5, 2008, the Magistrate Judge issued Findings and Recommendations granting the Plaintiff's motion to strike the answer of claimant Carlos Moreno Pacheco, and granting Plaintiff's default judgment against Carlos Moreno Pacheco and Gustavo Solis.
