E. Berger (Carnegie/Princeton) and M. Rauch (Carnegie) report:

"We obtained a spectrum of the optical afterglow of GRB 080310 (GCNs 7381, 
7382) using the MagE spectrograph on the Magellan/Clay 6.5-m telescope. 
From preliminary analysis we determine a redshift of about 1.7 based on 
broad Ly-alpha absorption at ~3300A.  Further observations and analysis 
are on-going."
