Preview of Rita/Claiborne Cases:
In the Tuesday New York Times, Linda Greenhouse has a very good article explaining the stakes in Tuesday's oral arguments in two important sentencing cases, Rita and Claiborne, the Supreme Court's follow-up to Booker. The issues in the cases are very technical but very important, and Greenhouse does a terrific job explaining them and putting them in context. You can read the briefs filed in the cases here via SL&P.
