FSR issue on Booker heading to press

I have finally put the finishing touches on the Federal Sentencing Reporter's latest issue, which is entitled "The Booker Aftershock."  The title a mini-homage to FSR's first (of many) Blakely issues, which carried the titled "The Blakely Earthquake."  (Details about FSR's three recent Blakely issues are here and here and here, and the journal can be ordered here and accessed electronically here.)   The pretty cover to this latest FSR issue can be downloaded below, and here are the contents:


  • Douglas A. Berman, Perspectives and Principles for the Post-Booker World


  • Kim Hunt & Michael Connelly, Advisory Guidelines in the Post-Blakely Era
  • Michael Marcus, Blakely, Booker, and the Future of Sentencing
  • Michael O'Hear, The Myth of Uniformity
  • Stephanos Bibas, The Blakely Earthquake Exposes the Procedure/Substance Fault Line
  • James Felman, The Need for Procedural Reform in Federal Criminal Cases
  • Phillip Zane, Booker Unbound: How the New Sixth Amendment Jurisprudence Affects Deterring and Punishing Major Financial Crimes and What to Do About It


  • U.S. Sentencing Commission, Fifteen Years of Guidelines Sentencing: An Assessment of How Well the Federal Criminal Justice System Is Achieving the Goals of Sentencing Reform (Nov. 2004)
  • U.S. Sentencing Commission, Preliminary Findings: Federal Sentencing Practices Subsequent to the Supreme Court's Decision in Blakely v. Washington (Dec. 2004)
  • Memorandum to Federal Prosecutors from U.S. Department of Justice, Office of the Deputy Attorney General (Jan. 28, 2005)
  • Jon Wool, Beyond Blakely: Implications of the Booker Decision for State Sentencing Systems (March 2005)

I believe this latest FSR issue will be available electronically with a week or so.  And, not long thereafter, another FSR Booker issue — this one asking "Is a Booker fix Needed?" — should be heading to press.
