Wright, No. 09–CR–103 (E.D. La. Dec. 16, 2009), and vacated the Eastern District of Texas’s judgment in United States v. Paroline, 672 F.Supp.2d 781 (E.D. Tex. 2009). In re Amy Unknown, 701 F.3d 749 (5th Cir. 2012) (en banc). The Supreme Court subsequently vacated our judgment and remanded, holding that 18 U.S.C. § 2259 requires “restitution in an amount that comports with the defendant’s relative role in the causal process that underlies the victim’s general losses.” Paroline v. United States, 134 S. Ct. 1710, 1727 (2014). Likewise, in Wright v. United States, 134 S. Ct 1933 (2014), the Court vacated our judgment in light of Paroline. Judge Higginson is recused and did not participate in any aspect of the en banc rehearing. Judge Costa did not participate in the en banc rehearing or in this decision. * 2 Case: 09-41238 Document: 00512658314 Page: 3 Date Filed: 06/10/2014 No. 09–41238 c/w No. 09–41254 No. 09–31215 Accordingly, we VACATE the restitution order of the Eastern District of Texas, VACATE the restitution order of the Eastern District of Louisiana, and REMAND for proceedings consistent with the Supreme Court’s opinion. 1 1 Michael Wright’s Motion to Remand in No. 09-31215 is denied as moot. 3
