United States v. Anderson, No. 13-12945 (11th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed the denial of his second motion for a sentence reduction based on Amendment 750 of the Sentencing Guidelines pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 3582(c)(2). The district court's jurisdiction was not limited by the strictures of Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 35 after it entered its orders. The court concluded that any error on the part of the district court was harmless where defendant offered no justification to depart from this court's previous order affirming the district court's finding that Amendment 750 does not apply to reduce defendant's guidelines range because his conviction involved at least 15 kilograms of crack cocaine. The court held that this is the law of the case and it need not address the merits of defendant's claim any further. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
