US v. Marion, No. 09-2525

By FindLaw Staff on December 29, 2009 3:15 PM

District court's decision denying defendant's motion to reduce his sentence under 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2) is remanded as the court's written analysis on the order form with a single sentence of explanation is a bit too terse to allow meaningful review of its decision, and here, the problem arises from the fact that it is impossible to ensure that the district court did not abuse its discretion if the order shows only that the district court exercised its discretion rather than showing how its exercised that discretion.
