On 22 July, ACCA will hear oral argument on the appeal of Lynndie England’s court-martial conviction arising from the Abu Ghraib scandal. The two assignments of error to be argued sound extremely interesting:

APPELLANT’S TRIAL DEFENSE COUNSEL WERE INEFFECTIVE FOR CALLING PVT GRANER AS A PRESENTENCING WITNESS KNOWING THAT HIS TESTIMONY COULD RENDER APPELLANT’S PLEAS IMPROVIDENT.
