Today's Booker blogsphere buzz

The blogsphere is buzzing with all sorts of interesting Booker talk, which is not surprising since today is now, by my declaration, the best post-Booker day ever.  (Faithful readers will recall from this post that I am a big fan of Richard Scarry and all of his best ever books.)  Here is what I have seen on various topics:

  • Concerning the Comey memo setting out DOJ's post-Booker policies (detailed here), Ellen Podgor at White Collar Crime Prof Blog has this insightful post with pointed comments about the attached "Booker Sentencing Report Form."  In addition, David Porter at the Ninth Circuit Blog provides his take on the memo here.

  • Concerning the due process/ex post facto issues surrounding a post-Booker sentence increase based on pre-Booker conduct (an issue previously covered in posts here and here), the Ninth Circuit Blog has posted here an insightful portion of a brief discussing these important matters.

  • Concerning some of the work of the circuit courts today, the blog Appellate Law & Practice has this post on Crosby (basics here) from the Second Circuit and this post on Oliver (basics here) from the Sixth Circuit.
