NPR has an interview of Prof. Doug Berman of Sentencing Law and Policy discussing the Supreme Court’s decision to grant cert in Booker and Fanfan.

Lyle Denniston has an article in the New York Times. Bloomberg has an updated story. David Savage of the LA Times has covered the story. Tony Mauro of the Legal Times has a thoughtful article on yesterday’s events. And finally, the USA Today has a story, too (featuring Justice Scalia's picture, capturing him deep in thought - about Blakely, no doubt).

If you’re tired of stories recapping yesterday’s news, read this article from the New York Law Journal: Lawyer Who Tried 'Blakely' Logic in '01 Again Fails in Bid for Lower Sentence.
