Around the circuits again

The Fourth Circuit's Clark decision on considering state/federal disparity after Booker (details here) is the big decision of the day.  But, other circuits have also celebrated Booker's birthday today with notable sentencing rulings.  Like yesterday, I barely have time to flag these decisions, and I encourage readers to let me know of any far-reaching they might see in these rulings:

Third Circuit: US v. Hedgepeth, No. 04-4564 (3d Cir. Jan. 12, 2006) (avialable here)

Fifth Circuit: US v. Arizaga-Acosta, No. 04-20942 (5th Cir. Jan. 12, 2006) (available here)

Ninth Circuit: US v. Allen, No. 05-50078 (9th Cir. Jan. 12, 2006) (available here)

One interesting thing about the Hedgepeth decision from the Third Circuit is that Alito was on the three judge panel.
