But where The Lego Movie was unexpected and often surprising, The Lego Movie 2 is mostly familiar, treading ground that other animated films from competing studios have already covered with more insight. I...

Will the FIRST STEP Act's crack retroactivity provisions result in many reduced sentences beyond those serving mandatory-minimum terms?

The question in the title of this post is prompted by a notable "Order Reducing Sentence" entered earlier this week in US v. Tucker, No. 3:00-cr-00246-2 (S.D.
