We’ve previously discussed (here and here) AFCCA’s opinion in United States v. Nerad, 67 M.J. 748 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. 2009), holding that the Courts of Criminal Appeals are authorized to set aside a legally and factually sufficient but unjust conviction. AFCCA today issue this order denying the Government’s motions for reconsideration, reconsideration en banc, and oral argument. United States v. Nerad, No. ACM 36994 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. July 6, 2009) (order).
