Michael Peregrine was quoted in the January 20 issue of BNA's Health Law Reporter regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that U.S. Sentencing Guidelines violated the Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial. Mr. Peregrine commented that the ruling in no way lessens the need to heed policy considerations behind U.S.S.G. Chapter 8 on compliance plans. "Regardless of what the Supreme Court said, my guess is that these considerations will survive as they reflect the view of regulators and of courts concerning the director's oversight obligations," commented Mr. Peregrine.
