The Supremes have docketed a cert petition in Moorefield v. United States, No. 08-19. CAAF’s decision in the case rejected a challenge to the impartiality of the staff judge advocate who provided the post-trial recommendation because he had presided over a previous court-martial of Sgt Moorefield. United States v. Moorefield, 66 M.J. 170 (C.A.A.F. 2008) (per curiam). We took a brief look at the Moorefield opinion here.
On the cert petition, Sgt Moorefield is represented by Darrin W.S. MacKinnon, Esq. If anyone has the QP, could you please pass it along? You can post it below or e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
