Olis resentencing (finally) to go forward

Two-and-a-half years after he was initially (and incorrectly) sentenced to 24 years' imprisonment, former Dynegy executive Jamie Olis is due to be resentenced in Houston on Tuesday afternoon.  This AP story provides the basic background, and this interesting commentary from The Economist spotlights the "several tricky technical issues" in play in the case.

Olis was supposed to be resentenced nine months ago(!), and the posts below reflect some coverage from that time.  Back in January, I predicted that Judge Sim Lake would impose a new sentence of around 5 to 7 years and that another round of appeals from the resentencing is perhaps inevitable.  I am sticking with these predictions.
