Lots of late week sentencing action in the circuits

Though I do not see any decisions that jump off the page like the Eighth Circuit's reefer madness in Chauncey, sentencing fans looking for a little extra weekend reading should know that there are notable published opinions on a range of issues coming from First, Second, Fifth, and Ninth Circuits today. 

Helpfully, the fine folks at Appellate Law & Practice have summarized an number of the decisions from the First, Second and Fifth Circuits in recent posts, and the folks running the various federal defender blogs (assembled here) are also keeping pace with various developments.  (And I continue to encourage all readers to send me e-mails about significant rulings; especially with classes starting here at Ohio State, I am often unable to spot all the important holding and dicta being cranked out on a regular basis.)
