Before the year 2005 is dismissed,practitioners and professors look back at what the last 12 months have taught us.
Same Old Sentencing As 2005 draws to a close, Douglas Berman points out a broader and perhaps more important lesson has emerged from the aftermath of U.S. v. Booker — namely that sentencing developments are often influenced more by sentencing culture than by sentencing doctrine. • It’s Still My House The Supreme Court’s June ruling in Kelo v. City of New London stunned the vast majority of Americans. And then the overwhelmingly negative public reaction to the decision shocked local officials, planners, and law professors.

Bush’s core constituency. • Never Above the Law High-profile public corruption investigations made a roaring comeback in 2005, and recent events suggest that 2006 is going to be filled with more investigations, prosecutions, pleas, and trials of high-ranking government officials than we’ve seen in quite awhile, according to Michael Levy.
