Sorting the pipeline cases

The Christian Science Monitor has this article discussing a range of Booker fall-out issues, and gives special attention to the challenges courts are facing sorting out all the cases in the appellate pipeline.  A similar well-done article from the National Law Journal is available here at law.com.

Additional news on this front comes from the Third Circuit Blog, which here reports that the Third Circuit "has begun sending out orders in cases pending on direct appeal that direct counsel who wish to raise a Booker challenge to do so in a letter of 750 words or less."  The post also reasonably suggests that the Third Circuit will be "using these letters as the primary means of screening cases for remand under Booker."  A thoughtful reader was kind enough to pass along one of these letters, which can be downloaded below.
