We previously noted ACCA’s very interesting opinion in an Article 62 appeal concerning the retroactive effect of Congress lengthening the statute of limitations for child abuse offenses in United States v. Lopez de Victoria, __ M.J. ___, No. ARMY MISC 20061248, 2007 WL 1310317 (A. Ct. Crim. App. May 7, 2007). Lopez de Victoria’s counsel filed a petition at CAAF the very next day. This Monday, CAAF denied a motion to stay proceedings. United States v. Lopez de Victoria, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-6004/AR (C.A.A.F. May 21, 2007) (order).
