Lagos v. US, 16-1519

Reversing and remanding the award of restitution for legal, accounting, and consulting fees incurred by a lender after their participation as a party in the bankruptcy proceedings of a man who used a company he controlled to defraud them of tens of millions of dollars because the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act's language relating to reimbursement related to the expenses incurred in a prosecution and the court held it did not cover bankruptcy or civil proceedings.
