Professor Jeffrey L. Fisher is quoted in this article that describes the rejection of California sentencing law by the Supreme Court.

"California has some work to do, but it should not cause havoc in the courts," says Stanford Law School professor Jeffrey Fisher, who wrote a brief in the case for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and is a key strategist in challenges to sentencing laws. Fisher said defendants on direct review should get a "fresh look" at their sentences as a result of the ruling Monday.
