UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Case No. 2:18-mc-51513
Hon. Matthew F. Leitman
TAMECA TONEY, a/k/a
ORDER DENYING WITHOUT PREJUDICE DEFENDANT’S
REQUEST FOR HEARING ABOUT THE GARNISHMENT
AND CLAIM FOR EXEMPTIONS (ECF No. 10)
On October 22, 2021, the United States of America filed a request for the
issuance of a continuing writ of garnishment as to Defendant Tameca Garrett (a/k/a
Tameca Nichole Toney). (See Request, ECF No. 7.) In response, on November 29,
2021, Garrett filed the instant request for a hearing regarding the garnishment. (See
Request, ECF No. 10.) In her request, Garrett asked that this Court “stop [the
requested] garnishment” due to “recent financial strains.” (See id., PageID.45.) The
Court held a hearing with the parties on today’s date, January 11, 2022.
For the reasons stated on the record, the Court declines at this time to modify
the garnishment as requested by Garrett. As further discussed on the record, the
Court expects that the parties will work cooperatively to see if they can reach an

agreement with respect to the garnishment. If the parties ultimately do reach such
an agreement, they may submit a stipulated order for this Court’s approval. On the
other hand, if the parties are unable to reach an agreement with respect to the
garnishment, Garrett is free to re-file her request for a hearing regarding the
garnishment, and the Court will promptly consider her request. As explained on the
record, the Court expects that such a request, if necessary, will be accompanied by
financial documentation to support any request for a modification.
Accordingly, the Court DENIES WITHOUT PREJUDICE Garrett’s
Request for a Hearing about the Garnishment and Claim for Exemptions (ECF No.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
