This week at the Supreme Court: The Supreme Court has nothing military justice related on its plate until next week’s conference, for which the Rodriguez cert petition, No. 08-1465, has been distributed. We’ll be monitoring Rodriguez to see if there’s a call for a response from the SG.
This week at CAAF: CAAF has no oral arguments scheduled this week. Judge Everett’s funersal service will be held on Tuesday and a visitation is scheduled for Monday evening, both in Durham. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the First Presbyterian Church, 305 East Main Street, Durham, NC 27701, for the Robert Daye Habitat for Humanity House.
This week at the CCAs: The Coast Guard Court of Criminal Appeals will hold oral argument on Wednesday in United States v. Usry. The assignment of error being argued is: “The military judge erred by failing to order further inquiry into Appellant’s competency to stand trial.” I understand that the issue involves whether a second 706 board was required due to the accused’s actions on the day of trial.
This week in military justice events: The second Cox Commission will hold a public hearing at 0900 on Tuesday, 16 June in the GWU law school’s moot courtroom.
