Most importantly, CAAF released an opinion yesterday in United States v. Von Bergen, __ M.J. ___, No. 03-0629/AF (C.A.A.F. Apr. 2, 2009).

CAAF’s Tuesday daily journal included an interesting summary reversal of a Navy-Marine Corps Court decision. United States v. Thomas, __ M.J. ___, No. 08-0738/NA (C.A.A.F. March 31, 2009).
