The yo-yo fun of limited Booker remands

Today the Seventh Circuit decided to publish its disposition in US v. Askew, No. 04-2539 (7th Cir. July 20, 2005), published (Aug. 1, 2005) (available here), which discusses exactly when a district court's statement satisfies the circuit's plain error Booker standard after a limited Paladino remand.  The decision in Askew is not especially significant legally, but I cannot help but be amused by the appellate yo-yo in this case resulting from the limited remand approach adopted in the Seventh Circuit in Paladino (and also by the Second, Ninth and DC Circuits).

I am a defense attorney employed by the Federal Public Defender of Nevada. I work in Las Vegas, Nevada. I've been a lawyer in private practice, doing business litigation (9 yrs.) and I've been doing Crminal Defense exclusively in this position for 12 years. My cases run across the spectrum of criminal law. Perhaps due to my background, I get a majority of the paper/white-color/tax cases that come in.
