Detroit, MI asked in Criminal Law for Michigan

Q: My cousin received and itemized list of seizure from the fbi. It's not his stuff should he contest or ignore?

His apartment building was raised a few months prior, and although it didn't have anything to do with him he was still questioned. They Lt him go and nothing has happened since but he got a certified letter saying that they were going to seize if he didn't forfeit the items on the list. They were not aren't his and have never been his or in his possession so should he contest or just ignore?

A: If it's not his stuff, what would there be to contest? Your cousin would be well advised to leave well enough alone.
