First Sir Cloudesley gets his own Facebook page. Then JO’C names him CAAFlog’s Most Valuable Commentator. Now he’s quoted in a law review article. I’m not kidding. Look at footnote 88 in Major Tyesha E. Lowery’s new Army Lawyer article, The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same: Has the Scope of Military Appellate Courts’ Jurisdiction Really Changed since Clinton v. Goldsmith?, Army Law., March 2009, at 49, 54.
MAJ Lowery writes, “There is nothing precluding a former servicemember whose case is final under Article 76 from petitioning a court of criminal appeals for extraordinary relief.” In support, she offers this footnote: “Posting of Cloudseley Shovell to CAAFlog, https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=34853720&postID=1877241590194968336 (June 23, 2008, 14:00 EDT) (Denedo ‘opens the doors of the CCAs to all manner of extremely stale claims, because now CCAs have continuing jurisdiction over all cases meeting the Art. 66(b) threshold, no matter how old, no matter how thoroughly reviewed, and no matter how final. All you need is an appellant who is still alive.’).”
[Alas, the article misspells the good admiral’s name.]
