Guam - The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the suppression of evidence in the criminal case against In and Song Cha, the owners of the former Blue House Lounge.  The two were charged with federal crimes of conspiracy, sex trafficking and coercion and enticement to travel for the purpose of prostitution.

The Chas moved to suppress evidence that had been seized, including $250,000 in cash.  The appellate court agreed with the District Court, finding that the seizure of their residence - lasting a minimum of 26.5 hours - was constitutionally unreasonable and suppression of the evidence was warranted.
