CONSENT JUDGMENT

CORMAC J. CARNEY, District Judge.

This civil forfeiture action was commenced on January 19, 2012. Claimants Richard Ayvazyan, Marietta Ter-Abelian, and Zhaneta Momdzayan ("Claimants") filed claims on March 1, 2012. No other claims or answers were filed, and the time for filing claims and answers has expired. Plaintiff and Claimant have made a stipulated request for the entry of this consent judgment of forfeiture resolving all claims concerning the defendant $200,000.00 in Bank Funds ("defendant funds").

The Court has been duly advised of and has considered the matter. Based upon the mutual consent of the parties hereto and good cause appearing therefor, the Court hereby ORDERS, ADJUDGES AND DECREES that the defendant funds and all interest earned on the entirety of the defendant funds since seizure, are hereby forfeited to the United States, and no other right, title or interest shall exist therein.

The Court finds that there was reasonable cause for the seizure of the defendant funds and the institution of this action. This consent judgment shall be construed as a certificate of reasonable cause pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2465. Each of the parties shall bear its own fees and costs in connection with the seizure, retention and forfeiture of the defendant funds.
