More buzz about record variance in Adelson
As detailed here last week, SDNY Judge Jed Rakoff has authored a detailed opinion to explain the extraordinary below-guideline sentence he gave to former Impath Inc. President, Richard Adelson. Because the sentence, and Judge Rakoff's opinion, are both remarkable, they continue to generate buzz.
Monday's New York Law Joural his this story about the case. Here is the lead: "A federal judge in New York has defended a non-guideline prison sentence for a former business executive convicted of conspiracy and securities fraud, saying to rule otherwise would be a 'travesty of justice'." And the Second Circuit Sentencing Blog has this extended post on Judge Rakoff's opinion, which concludes with some interesting speculations about how the government's appeal will likely fare.
