May day Booker resource updates

May not only brings flowers, but also updates of two of the most helpful sentencing resources developed by federal defense attorneys:

1.  On the Blakely/Booker page of the website maintained by the Office of Defender Services Training Branch of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts you can find Fran Pratt's latest updated outline of post-Booker decisions.  This terrific outline, which is accessible at this link, now runs over 100 pages and is current through decisions of May 2.

2. I have received from Michael Levine, who regularly updated his pre-Booker mega-resource entitled "88 Easy Departures," the latest iteration of his post-Booker version of this document with important advice and strategies for defense counsel.  Entitled now "108 Easy Mitigating Factors" (and available for download below), this document has been updated through May 1 with topical coverage of "cases granting, affirming, or suggesting mitigating factors."
