re lindsay harrison
her bigger accomplishment was writing an important amicus brief for the
NAACP in the critical sentencing case of Kimbrough v US, which was
decided in favour of the defendants-appellants, and which liberalized
re-sentencing procedures after Booker v. US, further destroying the
sentencing guideline structure in the federal system and resulting in
potentially new sentences or trials for more than 20,000 federal inmates.
it's a big deal, actually.
