More thoughtful sentencing work by the Sixth's Judge Martin

The Sixth Circuit's Judge Boyce Martin adds to his body of thoughtful sentencing opinions today with his decision for the court in US v. Ely, No. 06-5464 (6th Cir. Nov. 16, 2006) (available here).  Ely covers both Eighth Amendment forfeiture claims and Booker reasonableness issues thoroughly in the course of affirming a sentence for a defendant convicted by a jury of "bulk cash smuggling and making a false and fictitious material statement and representation to a Customs and Border Protection officer."
