Quick SCOTUS sentencing argument day report

I'm still on the road, but have long enough on-line to note this post at The BLT about today's two SCOTUS sentencing cases argued today and also to provide links to the transcripts thanks to SCOTUSblog:

The transcript of today’s argument in in Greenlaw v. United States (07-330) is now available here.

The transcript of today’s argument in in Irizarry v. United States (06-7517) is now available here.

I likely won't get a chance to process these transcripts and all the other day's sentencing developments until very late, but readers are encouraged to share their thoughts before I even get a chance to develop mine.

Thanks a lot for the links; I will surely provide some useful information in this context.

From reading the transcripts, I thought both amici curiae did very well. Bo Rutledge could very well "win" his case -- his response to Justice Ginsburg's last question was especially thoughtful and persuasive.
