1st Circuit Puts on the Brakes

A reader has brought the following order from the First Circuit to my attention:

In United States v. Cianci, --- F.3d ---, 2004 WL 1775024 (1st Cir. Aug 10, 2004), the First Circuit ordered the following:

In light of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Blakely v. Washington, 124 S.Ct. 2531 (June 24, 2004), we do not decide the sentencing appeals raised by all defendants as well as challenges by defendants and the government to the district court's forfeiture order. By separate order, we have requested additional briefing and oral argument on these issues.
