Second Circuit -- United States v. Torres

Federal civil forfeiture correctly imposed where deft gained city subsidized housing by making misrepresentations to state agency which was using federal funds.

Forfeiture to the feds and restitution to the state agency can be imposed concurrently.  Deft can then petition that the feds repay the state agency to reduce the restitution.
