The bad news: CAAF today issued an order changing the deadlines for filing supps. Starting on 1 September, supps will be due in conjunction with the petition where the petition is filed by counsel and 20 days after filing of the petition if filed by the accused. In those rare instances where appellate government counsel file an answer to the supp instead of a 10-day letter, the answer will be due in 20 days. I predict a bumper crop of CAAF petitions filed on 31 August.
The good news: Also starting on 1 September, CAAF will allow electronic filing of petitions for grant of review filed by counsel, supps, answers, and motions about supps and answers.
