The exciting week ahead in class ... and elsewhere

I hope everyone recharged their sentencing batteries with the help of Thursday's break because this coming week is going to be very full with exciting sentencing issues and related activities.  Here is a brief agenda to aid our collective planning:

Monday 10/31USSC expected to release 600-page report(!) on federal mandatory minimums.

Tuesday 11/1: Class will focus on consideration of acquitted/uncharged conduct at sentencing, with emphasis on US v. Watts (in casebook) and recent Ninth Circuit ruling in US v. Fitch (available here, further discussed in this blog post).

Thursday 11/3: Class will focus on quantifying offense conduct with emphasis on Coker v. Georgia (in casebook) and Problem 4-7 (p. 321 in casebook).

Friday 11/4: "Framing Innocence" event at 12noon in Room 252 AND Sentencing Movie Matinee at 3pm in Room 344 (at which snacks will be provided and after which will be a Berman happy hour)

I will sadly be working on Friday instead of enjoying movie/happy hour.
