News and Notes

1. Mario Claiborne has died, via Scotusblog. This is big news for judges, prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers around the country who have been waiting for the Supreme Court to decide United States v. Claiborne, which was to give us all more guidance on how sentencing hearings should be conducted post-Booker.

UPDATE -- the Supreme Court dismissed the case on June 4.

2. The DBR follows up on the Happy Meal comment to Bankruptcy Judge Laurel Myerson Isicoff that we covered earlier. Now that we are the DBR affiliate blog, we thought that we might get some props along with Abovethelaw, who broke the story...
