A calm start to a big day

After a weekend with a lot of interesting and important media coverage of the Blakely story (details here and here), the Blakely news this morning is limited. However, you can still find this article providing broad insights about the Blakely decision and about how it is playing in Peoria.

Of course, the day seems unlikely to stay calm. Today there is already scheduled an en banc hearing of the Fourth Circuit to consider Blakely issues, and I also believe the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission is due to release its short-term report on Blakely. And, most court watchers are predicting that the Supreme Court will make the biggest news this morning by granting cert. to consider the effect of Blakely on the federal guidelines. In other words, stay tuned.
