Big sentencing week at OSU and elsewhere
As documented by my weekly wrap-ups (recent examples here and here), every week now seems big in the sentencing world. And this coming week has a number of events at Ohio State and possible developments elsewhere that has me geared up for more major doings:
- As noted here by SCOTUSblog, the Supreme Court will issue an Order List on Monday, and opinions in one or more argued cases on Tuesday.
- As detailed here, Professor Jeffrey Fagan is scheduled on Tuesday to give Ohio State's annual Reckless Lecture on "Science and the Illusion of Deterrence in the Death Penalty: Cold Fusion All Over Again." This talk is especially timely given recent debates, spotlighted here and here, over the validity and implication of new death penalty deterrence literature.
- As detailed here, Professor Austin Sarat is scheduled on Friday to give OSU Moritz College of Law Schwartz Lecture on "Mercy, Clemency, and Capital Punishment: Two Accounts."
- Throughout the week in Washington, we may see further House consideration and additional public debate over the Booker fix provisions of H.R. 1528 (basics here, commentary here and here and linked here).
- Throughout the week at OSU, as detailed here, Larry Hammond, who serves as the Chair of the Arizona State Bar Indigent Defense Task Force, Chair of the Arizona Justice project, and is the President of the American Judicature Society, will be visiting a Visiting Interdisciplinary Practitioner in Residence.

I am a judge on the NY Court of Appeals, who had the pleasure of meeting several of your colleagues last spring (Profs Davies, Brudney, Michaels, Dressler). Our Court today handed down an Apprendi/Booker/Blakely opn (Peo. v Rivera). I enjoy the blog. www.courts.state.ny.us/ctapps/
