Lots of notable new sentencing notes in the Notre Dame Law Review

The Notre Dame Law Review will always have an extra warm stop in my professional heart because it published my first big sentencing piece about departures over a decade ago.  Now, thanks to a helpful reader, I have now leared that the February 2010 issue of the NDLR includes this trio of notable law review notes that look worth a look:

  • The Use of Sentencing Findings as a Collateral Estoppel Weapon in Subsequent Civil Litigation (by Jonathan Scott Baker at 85 Notre Dame L. Rev. 713)
  • The Unwelcome Cohort: When the Sentencing Judge Invades Your Bedroom (by Elizabeth M. Bux at 85 Notre Dame L. Rev. 745)
  • Double Take: Evaluating Double Jeopardy Reform  (by Kenneth G. Coffin at 85 Notre Dame L. Rev. 771)

Though all three of these pieces look like worthwhile reading, I am especially excited to learn that it has been sentencing judges (and not monsters) hiding under my bed all these years.
