CAAF’s daily docket on Friday contains a denial of petition for grant of review in United States v. Ward, No. 07-0473/NA (C.A.A.F. Sept. 28, 2007) (order). Wednesday’s daily docket includes this intriguing interlocutory order in Ward’s case:
On consideration of Appellant’s motion to attach filed June 29, 2007, said motion is hereby granted as it pertains to the affidavit from Appellant; the letter from Appellant’s wife; and the summary of forms documenting his exhaustion of administrative remedies at the USDB, Fort Leavenworth to established contact with his children. Said motion is denied as it pertains to the letter from his children.
Can someone from NAMARA fill us in on the details of this case? Was this a challenge to post-trial conditions of confinement at the USDB concentrating on denial of access to family members? If so, I litigated a similar case in Maryland, though my case was pre-Overton v. Bazzetta, 539 U.S. 126 (2003) (and my case was a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action).
