Lots of Second Circuit sentencing action

Thanks to the posts linked below from the Second Circuit Sentencing Blog, I see that the Second Circuit has started off 2008 with a flying start.

The crack sentencing reasonableness remand is in an unpublished order that says as little as possible on the merits.  Nevertheless, it hints that the Second Circuit might read Kimbrough to justify remands in all crack sentencing cases before the Supreme Court's decision.
