CAAF has granted a motion to file an amicus brief and participate in oral argument filed by Timothy Litka, a civilian military justice practitioner. United States v. Czachorowski, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-0379/NA (Feb. 29, 2008). Can anybody tell us the issue he is briefing and the interest of the amicus?
Czachorowski is an upcoming 18 March Project Outreach argument at Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law. The case continues an interesting recent trend. The last Project Outreach argument — Gallagher — had a civilian appellate defense counsel (Bill Cassara). Czachorowski also has a civilian appellate defense counsel (Frank Spinner). And one of the two upcoming Montana Project Outreach arguments — Bright — also has a civilian appellate defense counsel (Charles Gittins).
