Litigating in a post-Booker world

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Alan Ellis, I now have permission to post a copy of an article by Ellis, Karen Landau, and James Feldman which appears in the Spring Issue of ABA Criminal Justice Magazine.  Entitled "Litigating in a post-Booker World" and available for download below, the piece offers, in the words of the ABA's website, "a practical, point-by-point analysis of the impact of the Supreme Court's recent Booker decision on important defense elements, including plea agreements and negotiations, the imposition of longer sentences, pending appeals, and retroactivity."  And the article's opening paragraph explains that the piece "explains [Booker], its probable effect on federal sentencing practice, and suggests potential areas for litigation in a post-Booker sentencing environment."  Enjoy.
