Around the blogosphere
A diverse array of items caught my eye this morning in a quick jaunt around the blogosphere:
- At ACSBlog, Alex has this thoughtful post suggesting reasons why SL&P is "cited far more frequently in court opinions than any other legal blog." I think the analysis is spot-on, though it fails to mention that I have the best and coolest readership (which I am always eager to compliment).
- At Capital Defense Weekly, Karl Keys notes here that this week is National Crime Victims' Rights Week, and he points to a joint statement that has victims speaking out against the death penalty.
- At Judging Crimes, Joel Jacobsen has this post noting the impact of the Supreme Court on state criminal prosecution and lamenting that "the justices don't know much about criminal law, and even less about its day-to-day practice." He concludes that "it's almost - almost! - unfair to criticize the justices for screwing up the criminal law."
- Orin Kerr has this thoughtful discussion of the Supreme Court's (very) little reversal in the Salinas guideline case (previously discussed here).
- Both Grits for Breakfast and TalkLeft comment on the remarkable disparity in two Texas sentencing cases detailed in a recent Dallas Morning News article (discussed here).
