In Washington v. Recuenco, the Court also held by a 7-2 vote that "Blakely error," i.e., having a fact necessary to raise the maximum sentence found by the judge rather than the jury, is subject to harmless error analysis, as almost all errors are. Decision here. CJLF press release here.
In United States v. Gonzalez-Lopez, the Court held by a 5-4 vote that erroneous denial of counsel of choice is not subject to harmless error analysis. Decision here.
We will post comments on these cases later today.
