Supreme Court finally rules on Booker and Fan Fan

This was an important case regarding U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. Essentially, the Guidelines were found unconstitutional, but the court didn’t eliminate them entirely. They simply excised the unconstitutional parts and made the guidelines not mandatory. The decision is a mixed bag, but generally good news for reducing runaway sentencing. It remains to be seen how Congress will respond.
For much more comprehensive description of the Court’s ruling, see TalkLeft here, here, and here.
