United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Jorge Valentine Ramon, Jr., Defendant-appellant, 320 F.3d 519 (5th Cir. 2003)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 320 F.3d 519 (5th Cir. 2003)

February 3, 2003

Tony Ray Roberts, McAllen, TX, James Lee Turner, Asst. U.S. Atty., Houston, TX, for Plaintiff-Appellee.

Roland E. Dahlin, II, Fed. Pub. Def., H. Michael Sokolow, Houston, TX, for Defendant-Appellant.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas; George P. Kazen, Chief Judge.

Before GARWOOD and CLEMENT, Circuit Judges, and RESTANI, Judge.* 


Before the mandate was issued in this case, appellant was released from federal custody, rendering his appeal on a sentencing issue moot. The previous opinion of this court, published at 310 F.3d 317, is therefore VACATED, and the appeal is DISMISSED as moot.


Judge of the United States Court of International Trade, sitting by designation
