Notable sentencing action in the Ninth Circuit

I am starting to think out-of-work Hollywood screenwriters are in charge of assigning case names in the Ninth Circuit.  Last week, as noted here, we had US v. Knows His Gun, and today now brings another installment of US v. Bad Marriage, No. 03-00029 (9th Cir. Feb. 22, 2006) (available here).  Funny surnames aside, Bad Marriage appears from a quick read to have some notable sentencing action (along with a fiery dissent).  In addition, a few other Ninth Circuit criminal dispositions today (available here) have some sentencing coverage.  More commentary later as time permits.
