Seventh Circuit Criminal Case of the Week

By the default, the title “Case of the Week” must go to the only new opinion of the week: United States v. Gooden (No. 08-3240).  And even Gooden only barely qualifies, as the opinion is merely a slightly amended version of an earlier opinion in the case (noted in my post here).  The only difference I can see in the amended opinion is a clarification that the notice requirements of Rule 32(h) do not apply to post-Booker variances per the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Irizarry v. United States, 128 S. Ct. 2198 (2008).
