well, thank god I'm no lawyer. ;]
but its really bad what happened to the poor guy. It is one thing for a
law to be passed saying koi can no longer be sold or imported in the
state, it is entirely another to take a citizen's property that they
have had long before that law was made. Also kind of wonder how much it
cost him to buy his stolen property back.
