CHAPTER 7.5. SEIZURE AND FORFEITURE.1

Section 30440

30440. Court action by petitioner; limitation period. Within 20 days from the date of the mailing of the board's notice of denial of the petition, the petitioner may file an action against the board in the Superior Court of the County of Sacramento for the release or recovery of the property on the ground that the property was erroneously or illegally seized. The failure of the petitioner to file a timely action shall constitute a bar to his right to any interest in the property, except insofar as the rights of the petitioner may be established in an action filed by the board under this chapter. The court shall determine whether the seizure of the property was in accordance with law and shall enter an appropriate order for the disposition of the property.
