More Blakely commentary

Confirming my suspicion that I wasn't the only one thinking about Blakely while watching fireworks this weekend, I am pleased to be able to share two pieces of Blakely commentary that hit my in-box today. Because these pieces are not yet available on-line, I've posted them directly to this site:

1. An op-ed from Professor Stephanos Bibas to appear in Legal Times, in which he says the results of Blakely "may be more mandatory sentencing in some states, more wide-open discretion in others, and more pressure to plea-bargain all around."

2. A brief effort by Professor Mark Osler to "Reform and Salvage" the Federal Sentencing Guidelines After Blakely. Impressively, this reform and salvage operation requires only two pages and two steps.
