No, this is not a blog about medicine. It's Sanford Hausler's blog about the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and its opinions. The Court doesn't know about this, but I don't think it would mind.

Not Ex Post Facto. The Second Circuit has held that it does not violate the ex post facto clause to apply the holding of United States v. Bookerto actions that occurred before Booker was decided. This is one of those cases where the defendant was sentenced to a term longer than he would have been under the Sentencing Guidelines. The decision in United States v. Fairclough can be found at the Second Circuit website. It was decided on February 17, 2006.
