Additional COVID-influenced grants of federal sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A)

I am pleased to be able to report that I have found this week on Westlaw a good number of COVID-influenced grants of sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A).  I just have enough time this morning to list all the rulings here.

Samy v. United States, No. No. 16-20610-1, 2020 WL 1888842 (ED Mich Apr. 16, 2020)

United States v. Hammond, No. 02-294 (BAH), 2020 WL 1891980 (DDC Apr. 16, 2020)

United States v. Coker, No. 3:14-CR-085, 2020 WL 1877800 (ED Tenn. Apr. 15, 2020)

United States v. Cosgrove, No. CR15-230-RSM, 2020 WL 1875509 (WD Wash. Apr. 15, 2020)

United States v. Kataev, No. 16 Cr. 763-05 (LGS) 2020 WL 1862685 (SDNY Apr. 14, 2020) 

United States v. Wen, No. 6:17-CR-06173, 2020 WL 1820520 (WDNY Apr. 13, 2020) 

United States v. Smith, No. 12 Cr. 133 (JFK), 2020 WL 1849748 (SDNY Apr. 13, 2020) 

United States v Ben-Yhwh, No. 15-00830 LEK, 2020 WL 1874125 (D. Hawaii Apr. 13, 2020)

United States v. Tran, No. CR 08-00197-DOC, 2020 WL 1820520 (CD Cal. Apr. 10, 2020)

United States v. Burrill, No. 17-cr-00491-RS-1, 2020 WL 1846788 (ND Cal. Apr. 10, 2020)

As I have said before, I am fairly confident that this list does not represent all, and I suspect it does not even capture most, of the sentence reductions that have been granted by federal district courts over the past week.  Readers are encouraged to use the comments or to send me emails to supplement this list as new ruling are handed down or become available.

UPDATE: I noticed this afternoon a couple of useful press pieces discussing  some of this litigation as it is playing out in federal courts:

From Forbes, "Federal Prosecutors Across The Country Oppose Many Common Sense Motions For Compassionate Release"
