Nebraska litigation over setting minimum sentencing terms

The AP reports here on litigation in Nebraska over sentencing authority to set minimum terms.  Here are the basics:

The Nebraska Supreme Court is again being asked to decide whether judges are usurping the state Board of Parole by sentencing people to minimum terms of life in prison.  The court is set to hear arguments December 4th in the appeal of Terrence Moore, who has been sentenced three times for killing two Omaha residents.  He is now serving a life sentence for the 2005 crimes.
