Quick reading list for a long weekend

As Ron notes, I'm away and generally off-line for a long weekend.  So Ron will help out with insightful posts, while I'll be providing mostly cut-and-paste content when able to get on-line.  For example, here are highlights from a SmartCILP e-mail with lots of notable new published pieces on sentencing-related issues:

  • Beale, Sara Sun. The news media's influence on criminal justice policy: how market-driven news promotes punitiveness. 48 Wm. & Mary L. Rev. 397-481 (2006)

  • Cafaro, Tina Wescott. You drink, you drive, you lose: or do you? 42 Gonz. L. Rev. 1-28 (2006/07)
  • Coleman, Brady. Shame, rage and freedom of speech: should the United States adopt European "mobbing" laws? 35 Ga. J. Int'l & Comp. L. 53-98 (2006)
  • Kellar, Amanda M. Note. They're just kids: does incarcerating juveniles with adults violate the Eighth Amendment? 40 Suffolk U. L. Rev. 155-179 (2006)
  • Keuten, Matthew. Note. A categorical failure: explaining why the federal courts cannot uniformly decide whether the charge of being a felon in possession is a "crime of violence" under the Bail Reform Act. 52 Wayne L. Rev. 263-284 (2006)
  • King, Andrew. Comment. What the Supreme Court isn't saying about federalism, the Ninth Amendment, and medical marijuana. (Gonzales v. Raich, 125 S. Ct. 2195, 2005.) 59 Ark. L. Rev. 755-779 (2006)
  • Meekins, Tamar M. "Specialized justice": the over-emergence of specialty courts and the threat of a new criminal defense paradigm. 40 Suffolk U. L. Rev. 1-55 (2006)
  • Vannella, Daniel M. Note. Let the jury do the waive: how Appendi v. New Jersey applies to juvenile transfer proceedings. (Apprendi v. New Jersey, 530 U.S. 466, 2000.) 48 Wm. & Mary L. Rev. 723-770 (2006)
