United States v. Hyde

Pre 2005-Act: 
Pre 2005-Act
Obligation under Mandatory Victims Restitution Act was not subject to homestead exemption.
Procedural posture: 
The District Court for the District of Massachusetts ruled that defendant bankruptcy debtor's restitution order, imposed in a criminal case, created an entirely new obligation owed to plaintiff United States unaffected by the debtor's homestead exemption and 11 U.S.C. § 522(c), and the United States could enforce its garnishment order against sale proceeds of the debtor's home. The debtor appealed the district court's order.
