Spotlighting notable series of substantive reasonableness reversals by the Sixth Circuit

A helpful reader sent me this thoughtful review of some notable recent reasonableness rulings by the Sixth Circuit: The review of sentences for substantive reasonableness is often thought of as toothless, or as a “one-way ratchet” toward more severe sentences.  Of the countless appeals challenging sentences as overly harsh, only a couple of dozen have prevailed.  (Government appeals challenging sentences as too lenient seem to have found more success).  Appellate courts have been far more willin...

Productivity and Longevity: A Timeless Lesson From Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett, the famed investor, turned 90 last Sunday. At that age, he still hasn’t retired. He is still the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. Not only does he live long, but also he stays sharp mentally. In fact, one thing he did on his 90th birthday is announcing a new deal that Berkshire just made. Bill Gates mentioned that he has the mental sharpness of a 30-year-old. To be honest, this is a bit “confusing” from a health perspective because he isn’t known for having a healthy diet. Instead, “...

Biden may get a temporary bump in the polls, but viewership for Biden’s speech was down 21% from Clinton’s in 2016This past week, the former vice-president laid out a forceful case for the importance of empathy and character in high office, his ability to reverse the manifold failures of Donald Trump’s regime, and the threat that a second Trump term would pose to American democracy. Did he – and his fellow Democrats at the convention who echoed his points – do so successfully? In today’s tribal ...
