US v. Ekong, 06-11185

In proceedings involving a defendant convicted of health care fraud and ordered to pay restitution, an order overruling defendant's objections to the government's application for a writ of garnishment upon her interest in certain pension benefits is affirmed over claims that: 1) there was no justification for requiring immediate payment because the criminal judgment specified that restitution be paid in installments; and 2) the government failed to comply with 28 U.S.C. section 3205(b)(1)(B), by making demand for payment more than 30 days prior to seeking the writ of garnishment.
