It was a lazy Columbus Day for the courts, and today, only the Ninth Circut actually published anything at all.
But what it did publish was worth reading. Including this one, which concerns what a district court has to do in order to reject a stipulated plea and sentence.
Guess who -- among other people -- cares deeply about this. Hint: He's a lawyer. A class action lawyer. And well-known. And who's hoping to only spend a year or two in the pokie.
