Some Monday morning sentencing quarterbacking
Two commentaries this morning provide advice about how the Supreme Court ought to be doing its job in sentencing cases:
- In the New York Times, Adam Liptak has this column, entitled "Going to Court, but Not in Time to Live," provides SCOTUS advice on the granting of stays in capital cases.
- In the Los Angeles Times, this editorial, entitled "Do the crime, do how much time? The Supreme Court should find an equilibrium between judicial discretion and strict guidelines on criminal sentences," provides SCOTUS advice on how to resolve the Kimbrough case argued last week.
