U.S. seizing property in Internet sales case

In an article on The International Herald Tribune, Tom Zeller Jr. (New York Times) writes:

The U.S. federal authorities have begun to seize sports cars and other assets from a Minnesota man whose online prescription drug business has been the focus of a yearlong inquiry by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other agencies.

A U.S. District Court in Minneapolis on Friday agreed to seize control of about $18 million in assets related to what court documents described as a sprawling Web sales empire built, investigators contend, with millions earned in a separate spamming operation.
