Excerpt:
"Todd J. Zywicki, a bankruptcy specialist and law professor at George Mason University, said the consent order isn't unusual in cases in which a bankruptcy trustee is trying collect on a judgment.

"'It's standard debt collection to be able to freeze a bank account to protect the garnishment rights,' he said. 'Basically, the bankruptcy can reach out and grab the assets wherever they are.'"
