Motion for reduction of a crack cocaine sentence

US v. Taylor, 10-2329, concerned a challenge to the  district court's dismissal of defendant's motion under 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2) for a reduction of his crack cocaine sentence, for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.  In affirming the dismissal, the court held that, although the district court had subject matter jurisdiction to consider the request, defendant is not eligible for relief because the relevant retroactive amendment to the Sentencing Guidelines did not actually have the effect of lowering the sentencing range applicable to him.
