Updating scorecards

I am trying to use this weekend to do a "head count" of major, on-the-record rulings declaring portions of the federal sentencing guidelines unconstitutional. As predicted here, this is no easy task and requires a lot of "coding" judgment calls. Nevertheless, I think it is safe to assert that there are already over 20 separate rulings in district and circuit courts declaring at least portions of the federal sentencing guidelines unconstitutional after Blakely. If anyone else is working on a master list, please feel free to use the comments to report on your conclusions.

Attorney: My last Westlaw search on Blakely cases, done Wednesday of last week (thus, prior to Ameline, Mooney, Mosely, and Terrell), resulted in 38 district and circuit cases. I might be a case or so off on that number, it's from memory and the list is at the office, but it was more than 20. That number does include the original and both amended Croxford opinions, however.

Thanks, Kylie. I know that this search also includes cases discussing habeas petitions and other "collateral" issues. That said, the number of cases that grapple in some way Blakely grown every day.
