More on Blakely in the Fourth Circuit

The AP has this article which begins: "Confusion over a U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down Washington state's sentencing guidelines prompted the Richmond-based federal appeals court to schedule a rare August hearing on the ruling's impact in the five states it covers." The oral argument in the Fourth Circuit is set for August 2.

The article notes that Judge Hudson of the E.D. Va. has declared himself unbound by the Guidelines following Blakely.
