Federal judge angry about property seizure in Signature Pharmacy case.

A Florida federal judge scolded New York prosecutors for overstepping their authority in seizing property from a pharmacy that the government claimed was at the center of a steroid network that provided illegal drugs to professional athletes.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell on Thursday ordered prosecutors to return everything they confiscated from Signature Compounding Pharmacy, after a February 2007 raid of the company’s central Florida offices. Hundreds of thousands of patient prescriptions were seized along with drugs and all of the company’s electronic data.
