STINSON, TERRY L., PETITIONER
ON PETITION FOR WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE ELEVENTH CIRCUIT
Rehnquist, White, Blackmun, Stevens, O'Connor, Scalia, Kennedy, Souter, Thomas.
The motion of petitioner for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted, limited to the following question: "Whether a court's failure to follow Sentencing Guidelines commentary that gives specific direction that the offense of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon is not a crime of violence under USSG
Section 4B1.1, see USSG Section 4B1.2 comment. (n.2), constitutes an 'incorrect application of the sentencing guidelines' under 18 U.S.C. Section 3742(f)(1)."
