Second Circuit revises reversal of above-guideline sentence

As How Appealing notes here, the Second Circuit today issued this revised decision in its important variance case of United States v. Cavera (previously discussed here).  I am hopeful that Harlan at the Second Circuit Sentencing Blog will help everyone figure out what's new and extra important in this revised effort.

I think their clerks showed them the oral arguments in Gall and Kimbrough and they thought better of it. FPD NNY
