Once more around the circuits

The notable rulings today from Seventh, Ninth and Eleventh Circuits are, I believe, the biggest Booker  decisions of the day.  But, other circuits have also gotten into the act today with notable sentencing rulings.  Like yesterday and the day before, I barely have time to flag these decisions, and I encourage readers to let me know of any important aspects of these rulings:

DC Circuit: US v. McCants, No. 04-3064 (1st Cir. Jan. 13, 2006) (available here)

First Circuit: US v. Hanson, No. 03-1331 (1st Cir. Jan. 13, 2006) (available here)

Second Circuit:  This amended version of US v. Sheikh, No. 05-1747 (2d Cir. Jan. 5, 2006) (discussed here), amended (Jan. 13, 2006)

Fourth Circuit: US v. Fitzgerald, No. 04-4820 (4th Cir. Jan. 13, 2006) (available here)

Fifth Circuit: This replacement decision in US vs. Adair, No. 04-30859 (5th Cir. Nov. 8, 2005) (discussed here), withdrawn and replaced (Jan. 13, 2006)
