The court's latest Per Curiam opinion, United States v. Rossi, No. 08-6108 (Kearse, Cabranes, Straub, CJJ) (2d Cir. January 28, 2010) (per curiam), holds that the district court had jurisdiction under the pre-1996 restitution statute, 18 U.S.C. ยง 3663, to amend a restitution order after the defendant had completed her sentence and her term of supervised release. The circuit had previously remanded the case for reconsideration of the restitution order, and this remand restored jurisdiction to the district court, which therefore had the power to impose restitution even though the statute only permits the imposition of restitution "when sentencing a defendant."
