Lots more Gall and Kimbrough GVRs from SCOTUS

Continuing a story that started last week, today's new order list from the Supreme Court this morning includes a bunch of Gall and Kimbrough GVRs.  This time, I count only 21 GVRs, but that takes the total to nearly 100 and I suspect a few more with come in the weeks ahead. 

As I have said before, these GVRs are not that surprising given the rulings in Gall and Kimbrough, but how the circuit courts deal with all these cases they got wrong the first time will be interesting to watch.  Relatedly, I hope readers will continue to spotlight in the comments any other notable cases appearing on — or missing from — these GVR lists.

Along with the GVR's, it is worth noting that the Court denied certiorari in Black v. California, one of Cal. Supreme's Cunningham-on-remand cases.
