(All?) bottom-side briefs for Claiborne and Rita

Thanks to many kind readers, I now have received multiple copies of the government's briefs and the US Sentencing Commission's brief filed today in Claiborne and Rita.  I provide them for download here:

Download claiborne_sg_brief.pdf

Download rita_brief.pdf

Download ussc_amicus_brief.pdf

I am not certain if this comprises the total of all the briefs filed in Claiborne and Rita (and I have left out some of the appendices).  I will post any other amici briefs filed today upon discovery.  And commentary on these defenses of the federal guidelines will follow as time an energy permits.

I hope those weren't the actual briefs filed by the S.G.'s office, since neither of them have a table of contents.
