NBM3 reports here on his blog that the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Courts and Competition Policy today amended and favorably reported on H.R. 569, the Equal Justice for Our Military Act, whose original text is available here. NBM3 reports that the subcommittee adopted three amendments, two concerning when the bill takes effect and one to authorize SCOTUS to adopt a deadline for the filing of a cert petition where CAAF has denied a supp or petition for extraordinary relief. NBM# also reports that the subcommittee’s vote in favor of the bill as amended was unanimous.
