Claimants-appellants Boris Gordin, Anchor Enterprises, Inc., Saturn Systems Overseas, and Andrey Kornev appeal from a judgment entered in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (Dorsey, Chief Judge) after the district court granted the government's motion for summary judgment. The district court determined that there was probable cause to believe that claimant Boris Gordin had attempted to fail to file an International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instrument Report when transporting $500,000 out of the United States. See United States v. $500,000 in U.S. Currency, 858 F. Supp. 13 (D.Conn.1994). Accordingly, the court determined that forfeiture of the $500,000 was proper under 31 U.S.C. § 5317(c) and ordered that the funds be forfeited to the United States. We reverse.
