In re Schoerrer, 769 P.2d 1058, Colorado Supreme Court, 2/27/89  We granted certiorari to determine whether a creditor may garnish the proceeds of a student’s federally guaranteed student loan (GSL) in order to collect an antecedent business debt owed by the student. We reverse the court of appeals and hold that the use of state garnishment procedures to attach GSL funds for such purpose is clearly inconsistent with the federal  1059*1059 law governing the GSL program and thus the garnishment cannot be permitted.
