Great sentencing items around the blogosphere
While cranky technology slowed me down on Friday, others in the blogosphere helped keep the sentencing fires burning:
- Howard at How Appealing had a number of notable sentencing items in his Friday cavalcade of coverage. Check out this an examination of technicality injustice in a capital case, and the flagging of an important Ninth Circuit sentencing decision. (I'll have more on the Ninth Circuit's work in a subsequent post.) UPDATE: Howard has more coverage of the Texas capital case here.
- The Federal Defender blogs have a lot of new and notable items of late, and the coverage of sentencing issues is especially robust at the Second Circuit Blog, the Third Circuit Blog, and the Sixth Circuit Blog. Also, a must-read post from the defender team is this justified rant by Steve Sady at the Ninth Circuit Blog, which argues that "lower courts have been providing inadequate protection against Sixth Amendment violations: the failure to apply Apprendi and Blakely retroactively calls for the Supreme Court's intervention."
