Just an update on the Ninth Circuit blog's take on U.S. v. Dupas, No. 04-50055. The 9th issued an amended opinion yesterday (8/16/05) removing the "resonable doubt ... foreclosed by Ameline" and "Ameline precludes the court from relying on factual statements in the PSR ... only if defendant 'contests the factual basis of a PSR'" language in footnote 5. The 9th instead left the issues for "the district court to decide in the first instance."
