Sentencing news

Where do you get your sentencing news? The United States Sentencing Commission has a new resource: Case Law Quarterly. As the Commission describes it, "Case Law Quarterly provides brief summaries of select appellate court decisions issued each quarter of the year that involve the guidelines and other aspects of federal sentencing."

At a slim six pages, the first issue is just the right size to print and read on the airplane or in the waiting room of the doctor's office. My only complaint: The cases are organized by circuit rather than by subject matter. But even then, it's a nice compilation of guidelines and other sentencing cases, and you can see at a glance (in the first sentence of each entry) which cases resulted in sentencing reversals.
