Reasons. The Second Circuit has vacated a sentence in United States v. Hirliman because the judge for the second time had failed to provide his reasons for deviating from the Guidelines. The Second Circuit had previously remanded the case for resentencing, and ordered the judge to provide reasons for deviation, but he did not do so. The case is being reassigned to a new judge for resentencing.

The decision can be found here.
