Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a consolidated appeal of a denial of three defendants' motions to modify their sentences pursuant to 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2), denial of the motions is affirmed where: 1) defendants did not give up their right to appeal the denial of the motions as section 3582(c)(2) motions do not fall within the appeal waiver's scope; and 2) the district court did not err in finding the defendants ineligible for a reduction where the court did not make findings inconsistent with those of the original sentencing court and it did not abuse its discretion in light of the large quantity of drugs involved and in finding that the defendants were responsible for more than 4.5 kg of crack each.
