Three new opinions already today, including what looks to be an important Booker-related opinion by Judge Newman, but I'm getting an early head-start on the long weekend, so these are only pointers:
United States v. Selioutsky ("This sentencing appeal by the Government concerns the standard of review of advisory Sentencing Guideline determinations in the aftermath of United States v. Booker, 125 S. Ct. 738 (2005), and the need for sufficient findings to support such determinations.")
Hudson Valley Black Press v. IRS ("This appeal . . . squarely presents the issue whether taxpayers may seek to recover damages against employees of the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") for undertaking an audit in retaliation for the exercise by a taxpayer of rights protected by the First Amendment." Short answer: no).
Christie v. Hollins (reversing district court and graning writ of habeas corpus on a "claim that a state court’s exclusion of the testimony of a defense witness, given at a prior trial, resulted in a conviction obtained in violation of the constitutional right to a fair trial.").
