Stanford's ex-wife sues government over $12 billion asset seizure

The ex-wife of disgraced financier R. Allen Stanford sued the U.S. government seeking the return of $12 billion in seized assets.

 Susan Stanford claims the assets taken and sold are half hers and the U.S. had no right to confiscate them, according to her lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington. The assets were community property and Susan Stanford "is the owner of one-half of all community assets," according to the complaint.

 The government's claim to the property was undercut because it wrongly classified certain financial products sold by R. Allen Stanford, who is serving a 110-year prison sentence for a $7 billion fraud, as securities, according to the complaint.

 R. Allen Stanford, a billionaire investor from Texas, was convicted of multiple counts of wire and mail fraud and other charges in March 2012.

 Susan Stanford alleges that the seizure was a taking of property by the U.S. without just compensation in violation of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
