US v. Thomas, No. 07-3080

By FindLaw Staff on July 21, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's firearm possession sentence is vacated where 1) the law of the case doctrine precluded the district court from revisiting its determination at resentencing; and 2) the government adequately established that defendant committed the requisite predicate offenses under the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA) "on occasions different from one another" so as to subject defendant to the ACCA's mandatory 15-year sentence.
