New developments or data from the USSC?
The US Sentencing Commission has a public meeting scheduled for Thursday, August 28, 2008, at 1:45 pm. But this official agenda does not give any indication that anything notable is likely to happen, though an outsider can never be sure based on the limited public materials the USSC typically puts out before these types of meetings.
I am cautiously hopeful that, in conjunction with this scheduled public meeting, the USSC might have some more post-Gall data to share. The last official data run, set forth in this report, suggested that Gall and Kimbrough were impacting federal sentencing outcomes. But that report included only sentencings through early May; I am wondering which data trends reflected in the first six month of post-Gall data may have persisted (or grown more significant) through the summer sentencing months.
