The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Friday:

United States of America v. Robert E. Fox
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division. Chief Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson.
Criminal. Affirms Robert Fox’s his convictions of two Hobbs Act robberies. Vacates Fox’s sentence to 435 months’ imprisonment. Finds the district court was within its discretion to deny Fox’s morning-of-trial motion for a continuance when there was no indication Fox was particularly close to retaining new counsel. Also finds Fox is entitled to resentencing in light of Dean v. United States. Remands for resentencing.
