A bit of Blakely news
A few article of Blakely note have been in the papers in the last few days. This article discusses the recent oral argument in the Maine Supreme Court in a case now raising Blakely issues, while this article notes the unsuccessful Blakely claims made by Former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards and his son Stephen who were seeking to alter their federal racketeering and fraud sentences. And this article notes a case in which a Tennessee prosecutor conceded at sentencing that Blakely "barred him from arguing for anything more than the minimum sentence."
And this article is the first of what I expect will be many "Supreme Court previews" that gives prominent attention to the Booker and Fanfan cases to be heard on the first day of the new term.
