Minnesota Sentencing Commission and the Seventh Circuit

The Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission has issued their report. Basically, the report says that the guidelines don't totally disrupt the guidelines and the parts that are affected can be fixed.

Marcia Oddi, who keeps tabs on all things that are the 7th Circuit, among other things, has brought to my attention USA v. Singletary. As far as Blakely news goes, it's plain vanilla - just a remand for resentencing but Marci points out what appears to be cookie cutter language in the 7th Circuit: Thus, in light of the analysis set forth in Booker, we remand Singletary’s case to the district court for resentencing.
