We previously discussed the cert petition in Ryan v. United States, which challenged the Navy-Marine Corps Appellate Defense Division counsel’s refusal to file a cert petition on behalf of a Marine corporal whose court-martial results were affirmed by NMCCA and CAAF. We later noted that the cert petition had been returned to counsel to correct some formatting errors.
The Ryan cert petition has now been refiled and docketed by the Court. Ryan v. United States, No. 08-422. I haven’t seen the actual cert petition, so I don’t know to what extent it departs from the original petition, which is available here.
