There was quite a bit of military justice activity at the Supreme Court today. The Supremes denied Salvador Diaz’s petition seeking rehearing on the Supremes’ denial of his cert petition. And the Supremes denied the pro se cert petition in Perez v. United States, No. 06-10998. (Today’s Order List is here.)
As Fitz previously indicated, a cert petition in Cossio v. United States, No. 06-1568, was docketed. CAAF rejected an Article 10 speedy trial issue below in a unanimous three-judge decision written by Judge Erdmann. United States v. Cossio, 64 M.J. 254 (C.A.A.F. 2007). Let the Cossio watch begin!
