ORDER DIRECTING UNITED STATES TO FILE A RESPONSE

Now, six years following imposition of sentence, defendant brings the instant petition for writ of coram nobis seeking to amend the judgment to reduce the amount of restitution.
The United States is directed to file a response to the petition within 30 days from the filing date of this order.
Defendant may file a reply within 30 days after the filing of the government's response. As part of their written responses the parties are directed to address the following issues: 1) the amount of restitution paid; 2)the effect of defendant's waiver of collateral review on the instant petition; and 3) defendant's failure to object during the change of plea proceeding to the court's admonition concerning the possibility of removal as a consequence of his guilty plea. The matter will stand submitted upon receipt of the defendant's reply brief.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
