US v. Chittenden, 15-4659

Vacated forfeiture orders in a case involving a fraudulent mortgage scheme. The defendant argued that she should not have been ordered to forfeit over $1 million when she had received only $230,000 in proceeds from the criminal scheme. On remand from the Supreme Court, the Fourth Circuit concluded that it was necessary to vacate and remand the forfeiture orders on the ground that joint and several forfeiture liability was precluded by the Supreme Court's recent decision in Honeycutt v. US, 137 S. Ct. 1626 (2017).
