This week at the Supremes: No military justice developments are expected at the Supremes this week, though I wouldn’t be surprised to see the SG seek and the Supremes grant an extension of the deadline for filing the SG’s response that the Supremes called for in Rodriguez v. United States, No. 08-1465. (The response is due 15 July.)

This week at CAAF: CAAF has completed oral arguments for the term. The court will presumably decide all of its pending cases between now and 31 August. By my count, there are nine argued cases that have yet to be decided. It appears that CAAF will issue just 46 opinions of the court this term.

This week at the CCAs: Though it’s not on AFCCA’s online oral argument calendar, the court will hear oral argument in United States v. Seldes on Wednesday. Bill Cassara will argue for the appellant.

    Hopefully they won't grant an extension beyond 60 days.

    Anon 0723 — US SCT takes the summer off as well. Not sure what your point is.

    The opinions C.A.A.F. put out are detailed, thoughtful, and clear. I wouldn't trade that for all the oral arguments in the world.

    For those who miss oral argument season, I believe the audio archives are available for download.

    I think anon 723 point was that they get more then enough days off in relation to that of the regular working man. Though CAAF could just be catching some kind of unnecessary grief that lawyers get. They need better pr: http://lawblog.legalmatch.com/2009/06/18/trusting-americas-lawyers/

    CAAF also has numerous pending Motions, Petitions etc., that the Court must look at.

    Aside from the Supreme Court, what other appellate court takes the summer off. Just saying. Our troops don't get the summer off.

    Several of the circuits courts do the same thing.
