Greetings from DCA, where I’ve been stuck for hours and where I’ll be cooling my heels for at least another hour.
Thanks to the Anon commentator who noted that Harvard Law School’s web site now includes an announcement of the ACCA argument on Thursday. You can navigate to the announcement through this link.
Here’s what the HLS web site says:
NSLA: Army Court of Criminal Appeals Hearing
When Thursday, February 5, 2009, 5 – 7pm
Where Ames Court Room
Event type Lectures
Sponsor National Security and Law Association
Intended Audience All
Note Come hear arguments over the appeal of a soldier’s conviction for the smuggling of narcotics and firearms and money laundering. Harvard ID required.
Can it really be that ACCA is holding an oral argument that the general public isn’t permitted to attend? If an Airman stationed at Hanscom Air Force Base or an NJS instructor stationed at NETC drove to the argument and presented a military i.d., would he or she be turned away?
ACCA’s web site’s oral argument hearing calendar still doesn’t reflect the argument.
