Sixth Circuit thoughtfully discusses due process in affirming above-guideline sentence
The Sixth Circuit has a quite thoughtful opinion discussing due process in the retroactive application of the Booker remedy in the course of affirming an above-guideline sentence in US v. Barton, No. 05-1229 (6th Cir. Aug. 3, 2006) (available here). Adding to the nuance of Barton is a refined concurrence from Judge Cole suggesting that reasonableness review can and should keep some constitutional concerns at bay.
