More for your reading pleasure (Booker and Booker-free)
The kind folks at TalkLeft here suggest I am a source for "Blakely and Booker Articles and Advice." Hoping to earn (and perhaps broaden) that reference, I have two more articles to spotlight today. (Articles spotlighted previously in recent days are here and here.) The first is "all about Booker" and provides a practitioner-friendly review of the decision and subsequent caselaw, the other concerns collateral consequences and provides an astute academic perspective on a very important, but largely under-examined, criminal justice issue.
- The practitioner-oriented Booker piece is called "All about Booker" and comes courtesy of experienced practitioners Alan Ellis and James H. Feldman, Jr. It covers both basic and advanced Booker ground and seems current through last week's major developments in the Booker caselaw. Download it here: Download ellis_and_feldman_all_about_booker.pdf
- The academic piece is entitled "Enforcing State Law in Congress's Shadow" and comes from Professor Robert Mikos. An abstract and the full paper can be accessed here. As the abstract explains, the article examines "congressional statutes that impose federal sanctions on individuals convicted of state crimes" and suggests these sanctions "may profoundly influence state criminal proceedings."
