Eager to hear and post reports on courtroom ripples of new DOJ crack/powder policy

Especially because the Justice Department's important advocacy for completely eliminating the crack/powder sentencing disparity (basics here) prompts many real-world questions for on-going crack cases (noted here), I am eager to hear about and post details of any early courtroom consequences of DOJ's new policy perspective.  In particular, I hope litigants and/or court information officers will send me information about any notable documents or rulings that make reference to the new DOJ policy.

I am writing as the fiance of a federal inmate serving in a federal prison for crack cocaine. He was given 3 years in the state and then 30 in the federal. He represented himself. We are struggling trying to figure out where to go from here. Please help!!!
