Let’s return to People Magazine mode for a moment. (Actually, this story might not even rise to People‘s level of gravitas.) There is a story going around about a Project Outreach argument. I would love to know whether it’s true. Can someone with prescient knowledge confirm or deny this tale? I’m not a big fan of Project Outreach, but I’m willing to reconsider my position and become the program’s biggest fan if this actually happened.
The story has it that CAAF was scheduled to hear a Project Outreach argument at a civilian law school. CAAF chose to hear some meaty issue in a case with an unusual name. Lo and behold, it turned out that there was a student at that law school with that very name. Unfortunately for the student, the law school administration quickly realized that the student had failed to mention his court-martial conviction when he had applied to and been accepted by that institution of higher education. CAAF, so the story goes, has now decided to hear a different case at that law school. The fate of the original appellant remains uncertain, though regardless of whether CAAF affirms or reverses his conviction, obtaining a J.D. — much less a license to practice law — doesn’t appear to be in his future.
True or false?
