Another Blakely Blog
I just received this link to another Blakely Blog, which is "dedicated to collecting opinions, articles and scholarly thoughts regarding the Supreme Court's decision in Blakely v. Washington." The blog owner -- Jason Hernandez -- quaintly describes himself as "3rd year law student at Columbia Law School whose Note is in serious jeopardy of entering the circular file following Blakely." In addition to providing useful Blakely resources and news, the blog includes this wonderful query: "I wonder what Judge Frankel would have said about all of this."

I was directed to your blog by an interesting article I read in yesterday's Wall Street Journal. I am a rising second year law student who is in the tail end of a 10 week internship at the United States Attorney's Office for the E.D. PA. Your site is amazing and quite appropriate for the work I have been doing this summer. As you know, the majority of the DOJ Criminal cases involve upward and downward departures based on the federal judge's discretion. ALthough Blakely has not formally touched upon the federal jurisdiction, I have witnessed numerous cases subsequent to the decision where federal defenders have attempted to remove certain items from the court's power to depart fromt he sentencing guidelines. So far, thoe court has overruled all such motions, but I wonder how long this will last. Obviously if the S Ct. overturns the guidelines, courts will have to change, but aside from this happening next term, I wonder what I have to expect. I guess I do not have a real question, but simply wanted to post a message and let you know I enjoy the information on your site.
