Spanning the globe, Blakely style

From coast to coast, local newspapers are discovering that the Blakely decision may impact local cases. Here's just a sample of the coverage: this Cincinnati Inquirer story covers the impact of Blakely in Ohio in the wake of the Sixth Circuit's recent Montgomery decision, while this story in The Flint Journal discusses a motion made in one local case to declare the federal guidelines unconstitutional -- a motion which should be eaiser(?) for Senior US District Judge Paul V. Gadola to resolve after the Montgomery ruling (background here).

Moving south, here's a story from the Eastern Arizona Courier in which state Superior Court Judge Douglas Holt thoughtfully discusses the possible impact of Blakely and reactions thereto in Arizona. Finally, this interesting article from Myrtle Beach Online discusses Blakely's potential impact on three doctors sentenced to long federal prison terms for overprescribing narcotics. And since Myrtle Beach is the self-proclaimed "Golf Capital of the World" -- not to mention where I will be taking a family vacation in August -- I can't resist using this forum to predict that Ernie Els is the player to beat in The British Open Championship, which started today.
