United States v. Colasuonno

Ruling: 
Stay did not bar judgment revoking probation and resentencing of debtor for bank fraud and tax crimes.
Procedural posture: 
Defendant stood convicted of substantive and conspiratorial bank fraud and tax crimes, and he filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy after his initial sentencing. He argued that the automatic stay provision of the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C.S. § 362(a), temporarily halted his obligation to pay restitution and barred the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York from revoking his probation for nonpayment.
