Dinosaur smuggling Conspiracy Forfeiture Complaint Reveals Details of Illegal Conduct

'Dinosaur Smuggling Conspiracy: Bataar Skull Mislabeled as "Archaeological, Historic Piece" from Japan Says Newly Filed Forfeiture Complaint',  culturalheritagelawyer, January 13, 2014  
Familiar story:
"Archeological, historic pieces" from Japan is how the import paperwork described a Tyrannosaurus Bataar skull that illegally entered the United States. But the dinosaur head should have been classified as a paleontological fossil from Mongolia, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Colorado. This month John Richard "Rick" Rolater pleaded guilty to conspiring to import dinosaur fossils illegally. As part of a plea agreement with Wyoming federal prosecutors, Rolater agreed not to contest the forfeiture of several paleontological objects in his inventory, including the Bataar skull.
