DATED: August 29, 2013

ORDER

D. Brooks Smith Circuit Judge.

After consideration of the foregoing Motion, it is hereby ORDERED that the opinion filed on August 9, 2013, is AMENDED as follows: The following language, which appears on page 15,

For starters, the prior-acts evidence must be relevant to a proper purpose, and it must be relevant in a way that avoids any propensity inference. See United States v. Sampson, 980 F.2d 883, 887 (3d Cir. 1992).

is amended to read,

For starters, the prior-acts evidence must be relevant to a proper purpose, and it must be relevant without requiring the factfinder to make a propensity inference. See United States v. Sampson, 980 F.2d 883, 887 (3d Cir. 1992) ("If the government offers prior offense evidence, it must clearly articulate how that evidence fits into a chain of logical inferences, no link of which can be the inference that because the defendant committed drug offenses before, he therefore is more likely to have committed this one.").
