CAAF today released its opinion in United States v. Roberson, __ M.J. ___, No. 06-0611 (C.A.A.F. May 22, 2007). Roberson will probably be best remembered as the case that filled in for Cabrera-Frattini at the Loyola Law Project Outreach argument.
Judge Erdmann writes for a unanimous court. The Cliff’s Notes version of the decision is that the military judge erred by excluding a wheelbarrow full of defense evidence, but that it wouldn’t have changed the case’s outcome. Oh, and the 1,524 days (!) of appellate delay were non-prejudicial. Affirmed.
