After a 19-year battle involving airplane technology, Colombian drug cartels, and federal forfeiture laws, an aviation company won a $16 million final judgment last week in a takings case against the U.S. government.

The plaintiff, Hong Kong-based Innovair Aviation, alleged that the government had not paid just compensation when it seized a licensing agreement, violating the takings clause of the Fifth Amendment.

The government was represented by Department of Justice lawyer Sheryl Ford.
