CAAF’s Rules Advisory Committee will be welcoming some new members, but long-term and much beloved member Tom Granahan will be leaving the committee. Mr. Granahan was always very kind to me when I was a faltering young appellate defense counsel (as opposed to now, when I’m a faltering old appellate defense counsel). I wish him all the best! Georgetown Law Professor Jane Aiken will take his place on the committee.
In other membership changes, LCDR Kristina Reeves of Navy-Marine Corps Appellate Defense will be taking the seat formerly occupied by LTC Michele Shields of Army GAD. Maj Matthew Ward of Air Force Appellate Government will also be joining the committee.
