§ 586

United States v. Carroll

United States sued standing chapter 13 bankruptcy trustees seeking declaratory and mandamus relief, arguing sovereign immunity prevented enforcement of orders of the bankruptcy courts that required chapter 13 debtors' tax refunds be directed to the trustees. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan granted both forms of relief. The trustees appealed.
Ruling: 
United States lacked standing to seek declaratory and injunctive relief against trustee on bankruptcy court order on grounds of sovereign immunity.
