Editor's Note :

Berrios v. United States
Petition for certiorari denied on January 22, 2013
Issue: Whether 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1)(D)(ii), which provides
that “no term of imprisonment imposed on a person under this subsection shall run concurrently with any other
term of imprisonment imposed on the person,” is triggered when a defendant is convicted and sentenced under 18 U.S.C. § 924(j).
