It looks like CAAF’s output will be fairly light this term. Will this trend continue? Well, judging from March: yes! Last month, CAAF didn’t grant plenary review of a single case. CAAF’s daily journal is now current through 3 April. The last entry granting review and ordering briefs is dated 22 February. See United States v. Othuru, __ M.J. ___, No. 06-0768/NA (C.A.A.F. Feb. 22, 2007).
So it’s been 39 days since CAAF granted review of a case and ordered briefs. Shall we keep a running count, much like the little Barry Bonds home run counter in the outfield at AT&T park?
