This week at the Supremes: The Supremes have a session scheduled for tomorrow during which it may announce one or more opinions. It’s possible that Denedo could be announced, though it’s probably still too soon after oral argument for a decision in the case. After tomorrow, the next scheduled opinion announcement date is 18 May.
This week at CAAF: CAAF’s oral argument calendar indicates that sessions are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. But no cases are scheduled to be heard on those dates. Presumably there will be no actual sessions on those days.
This week at the CCAs: On Wednesay, ACCA is scheduled to hear oral argument in United States v. Goodwin, No. ARMY 20011125. The assignments of error to be argued are:
I. Appellant’s trial defense counsel was ineffective when he informed the members during his opening statement that the crimes occurred because appellant was desperate for money, he failed to cross examine government witnesses, and he conceded appellant’s actions were “misleading” in his closing argument.
II. It took the government from 7 April 2006 to 19 December 2007 to conduct and prepare the record for appellant’s Dubay hearing, and this dilatory delay warrants relief.
