Federal Sentencing Case Previews

| 1 Comment

Tomorrow is federal sentencing day in the Supreme Court, with the much anticipated oral arguments in Rita v. United States, No. 06-5754, and Claiborne v. United States, No. 06-5618. An interesting article by Frank Bowman is available here via SL&P. While suggesting what the Court should do about Blakely, Bowman reiterates his belief that it was a "huge mistake" in the first place. I second the motion. A commenter at SL&P suggests he dump the hackneyed Humpty Dumpty quote at the top of the article. I'll second that motion, also.

Also at SL&P, Doug Berman gives us this "shameless self-promotion" of links to his prior work on the cases and on Blakely and Booker issues generally.

Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog has this post. The Medill write-ups are here and here.
