Guest Blogging

Dear Readers:

We are thrilled to be guest blogging at Sentencing Law & Policy during Doug Berman's great two-week vacation and voyage out to sea. We are criminal defense attorneys at the firm of Proskauer Rose. We share a special interest in the world of sentencing, both as defense lawyers and as commentators. We are also great fans of the criminal law blogosphere, which unites academics, practitioners, politicians, jurists, and others interested in the field of criminal law and policy and encourages them to share their insight and experience.

Our hope as guest bloggers is to help narrow the gap between the law and policy of sentencing on the one hand, and the community of practicing attorneys on the other. In this role, we will continue to deliver the latest sentencing news, as well as provide some perspective into sentencing from the viewpoint of practitioners. As part of this effort, we plan to host a column dedicated to exploring the views from the field, with the hope of sparking meaningful debate among our fellow practitioners. This blog relies on your loyal readership and thoughtful comments. Please send any suggestions to Mark, Matt, Anna, or Jenn at the e-mail addresses listed below. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the many important sentencing issues to come.

I look forward to detail-oriented analysis of caselaw within the hour that it comes out. As you know, lawyers have an ethical duty to read all caselaw. S

Welcome guest bloggers. I look forward to reading your posts.

One suggestion: As this is normally a "solo blog," there is no "posted by" field in the design. To identify which guest blogger wrote the post, you might want to put your byline in the text.

of course you mean the community of practicing defense attorneys

When the majority of the Supreme Court, those whom voted to kill, go to church on Sunday, they should be asked by the preacher or Rabbi: just what part of the Commandment Thou Shalt Not Kill does thou not get?

mpb, if you really believe that the Sup Ct justices "voted to kill," perhaps you need to relearn how the legal system works.
As far as their church attendance goes, I'm not so sure that "Thou Shalt Not Kill" applies here, since the same Bible allows for executions of criminals.
Perhaps their minister or rabbi will share on this verse: "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." (Genesis 9:6)
