Turnout here in my Brooklyn district seemed much bigger than usual

First time in a very long time that I’ve actually had to wait on line to vote in a midterm year here in NYC. Probably waited about 10 minutes to get my ballot and then another few minutes to get into a booth. Not super long, but in the past I’ve been in and out in 5 minutes or less total.

Hopefully good news for Hochul (et al).

Concepcion v. US: Courts can consider intervening changes of law or fact to reduce sentences

Sotomayor, Thomas, Breyer, Kahan, and Gorsuch in the majority.

Kavanaugh dissents, joined by the Chief Justice, Alito and Barrett.

Concepcion is a case about whether, when a court is deciding whether to resentence a defendant under the First Step Act, which gives federal district courts power to resentence offenders in light of changes in the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, a district court must or may consider intervening developments, or whether such developments only come into play (if at all) after courts conclude that a sentence reduction is appropriate.

The Court holds that the First Step Act allows district courts to consider intervening changes of law or fact in exercising their discretion to reduce a sentence.


Thomas Jefferson on judges

You seem to consider the federal judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions, a very dangerous doctrine, indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.

Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have with others the same passions for the party, for power and the privilege of the corps. Their power is the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.

The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.

— Letter to William Charles Jarvis (1820)
