Appeals from the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas
(SA-95-CR-171-3-EP)[End Page ]
November 1, 2000
Before HIGGINBOTHAM, WIENER, and BARKSDALE, Circuit Judges.
Defendants-Appellants Felipe Zaragoza and Ricardo Bribiesca
appeal from the sentences that they received on remand. Appellants
argue that the district court erred in applying the money
laundering guideline, U.S.S.G. § 2S1.1, rather than the fraud
guideline, U.S.S.G. § 2F1.1, in determining their sentences for
their money laundering convictions. This issue is barred by the
"law of the case" doctrine. United States v. Becerra, 155 F.3d 740
, 752 (5th Cir. 1998).
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined
that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent
except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR.
Bribiesca argues that the district court erred in finding that
he was not entitled to an adjustment for his minor role pursuant to
U.S.S.G. § 3B1.2, erred in failing to make a sufficient fact-
finding on the matter, and erred in the manner in which it ordered
restitution in his case. These issues are beyond the scope of this
court's remand order. United States v. Marmolejo, 139 F.3d 528
530-31 (5th Cir.), cert. denied, 525 U.S. 1056
The judgment of the district court is affirmed.
