Interesting debate over what a PSR is all about

As highlighted here at How Appealing, the Ninth Circuit yesterday rejected rehearing en banc of decision immunizing from prosecution under 18 U.S.C. sec. 1001 false statements made by a criminal defendant to a probation officer preparing that defendant's presentence report.  The order denying rehearing en banc has a concurrence and two dissents has a lot of interesting talk about what a PSR is all about.

This case would seem to have cert potential if the government decides to try to take this issue to the Justices.
