Judge McConnell's Take on Post-Booker Reasonableness:
If you're interested in sentencing law, and in particular appellate review of sentences in the federal system, you don't want to miss Judge Michael McConnell's powerful concurring opinion in United States v. Pruitt. It's basically a short law review essay critiquing the current state of sentencing law. While I'm normally a bit uneasy about law-review-articles-as-opinions, McConnell's opinion is tremendously thoughtful and definitely worth a read. (LvHB)
