Welcome to the Blog’s periodic roundup of summary orders of interest.
In United States v. Rodriguez, No. 06-1681 (November 29, 2007), the court vacated a restitution order for further factfinding in a case involving the filing of fraudulent tax returns.
In United States v. Perez, No. 06-1040 (2d Cir. November 27, 2007), the court, yet again, bounced an Anders brief. Here it ordered counsel to file a supplemental brief that either (1) addressed the court’s Guidelines findings and calculations and the reasonableness of the sentence, or (2) explained why a discussion of reasonableness was unnecessary. If the brief really lacked all of these things, one wonders what it actually said!
