Cunningham & White Collar Cases

Yesterday, the United States Supreme Court issued an opinion in the case of Cunningham v. California, a sentencing case that may "constrain judges' power in sentencing." (See Linda Greenhouse, N.Y.Times). 

But the cases that may be more crucial in the white collar area are still outstanding in the Supreme Court - the cases of Claiborne and Rita. (see here).  More briefs were filed in these cases- see here.

For in-depth analysis on Cunningham see Professor Doug Berman's Sentencing Law & Policy Blog here, here, here, here, and here.
