Martin: Denial of Motion Seeking Judicial Recommendation for BOP Placement Is Not an Appealable Order

In United States v. Martin, No. 16-17353 (August 15, 2017) (Wilson, Jordan, Rosenbaum) (per curiam), the Court held that an order denying a defendant's motion for a non-binding, judicial recommendation to BOP for placement in a residential re-entry center was not a final appealable order under 28 U.S.C. 1291.  In so holding, the Court followed the unanimous view of six other circuits.
