Why Does The U.S. Government Sue Inanimate Objects?

When Justice Department went after Mesopotamian artifacts imported by Hobby Lobby, the lawsuit was actually filed against the ancient clay artifacts and not the retailer. Likewise, when the government determined that a Las Vegas casino had too much gold, it arrested and sued a solid gold rooster statue. Though they don’t always make headlines, such cases have a long, sometimes hilarious, history in U.S. law.

They do it, just like they do it for civil forfeiture and peoples money, they suspect to be drug money, and the reason behind it is, because it will be near impossible for you to prove the innocents of money being or not being used for drugs or crime and in this case with Hobby Lobby they would have to prove the inanimate object is not guilty which will be impossible, then as such, with no proof, the govt will seize it or take it, which is the plan all along...

Kinda like how the govt, local or state level can take your home, paid in full or not, over a water or sewer bill...
