MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
AMEDISYS HOLDING, LLC,
Case No.: 8:20-cv-1031-T-30AAS
Amedisys Holdings, LLC (Amedisys) moves the court, under Rule 69 of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Florida Statutes § 77.01 et seq., to issue a writ
of garnishment against Bank of America, N.A. for a judgment owed by Sam Sebiu.
Rule 69 provides that a money judgment is enforced by a writ of garnishment.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 69(a)(1). “The procedure on execution . . . must accord with the
procedure of the state where the court is located, but a federal statute governs to the
extent it applies.” Id. Florida law provides a right to a writ of garnishment to
judgment creditors to help satisfy a money judgment. Fla. Stat. § 77.01. To obtain a
writ of garnishment, the judgment creditor must file a motion stating the amount of
the judgment. Fla. Stat. § 77.03. The writ must direct the garnishee to answer the
writ within twenty days and state the amount named in the judgment creditor’s
motion. Fla. Stat. § 77.04.
