Notable Pre-argument Articles

A flurry of opening term articles are out there which summarize some of the cases the Court has agreed to hear this term. Below, you'll find a few articles which discuss Booker and Fanfan in moderate to high detail.

Charles Lane of the Washington Post has an article entitled, "Supreme Court to Consider Federal Sentencing Guidelines." Although close Blakely followers won't learn anything new from this article, it's a good but brief summary of the genesis of the current controversy.

The New York Lawyer has a story on the New York angle of tomorrow's argument. The article discusses former S.D.N.Y. Judge Martin's brief, and the brief filed by the New York Council of Defense Lawyers.

If you don't want to read, you can listen. NPR has a preview of the upcoming term available online. The guests are Kathleen Sullivan, law professor and former dean at Stanford Law School and John Yoo, law professor, University of California at Berkeley Law School.

I really like your conversation on lawyers. I have a lawyers secrets blog if you wanna come on over and check my stuff out.
