Happy Booker holidays from the circuit courts
As a fitting way to honor a Booker Festivus, today the circuit courts have wrapped up the pre-holiday week by issuing a bunch of sentencing opinions. I have already seen notable decisions in the First, Sixth, Eighth and Ninth Circuits.
Since I have shopping to do, all I can do is note summarily that none of these rulings appears to be ground-breaking, but all of them continue to fill in a picture of a post-Booker federal sentencing universe that looks a lot like pre-Booker federal sentencing universe. (Also, I can give a shout-out to the Eighth Circuit, because at this official opinion page you can quickly see the basics and find links easy links to its copious Booker work.)
UPDATE: Late in the day, the Second, Fifth and Tenth Circuits also issued notable sentencing opinions. I suppose all the circuits have earned the right to take a long weekend off.
