Still more on Blakely and the Fourth Circuit's approach

Via Yahoo, the Washington Post has this article with accounts of and commentary on the Fourth Circuit's temporary disposition in the Hammoud case of the Blakely issue as applied to the U.S. sentencing guidelines.

Also, the Lynchburg paper has this report ("Court clarifies ruling," 8/4/04), on the Hammoud order, noting that Judge Moon of the W.D. Va. "said he has delayed about three sentencings since the Blakely decision." (Those three sentencings might now be six sentencings).
