I am sure to get flack from the NMCCA’s long time (or at least returning) uniformed commissioner, Commander Jim Carsten, for the I think comment.  But, in any event, we here at CAAFlog are very happy to announce that as of Sep. 1, 2009, “all final [NMCCA] opinions” will be publicly available.  We are relatively sure that means all published, unpubublished, and per curiam opinions. 

The NMCAA’s website annouces the change here and here is the first opinion that appears to be a PC opinion, US v. Cartney, No. 200900058 (N-M. Ct. Crim. App. Sep 8, 2009). 

While I doubt CAAFlog had anything to do with the change, in recognition of the event we will stop all NMCCA bashing . . . at least of their website.

    NMCCA rates a HUGE BZ for making all of its opinions available on its web site. Since it has made all of its oral arguments available on its web site for some time now, NMCCA is now the most publicly accessible of all the CCAs. Bravo Zulu, NMCCA!

    Am I the only one having problems with the AFCCA website? None of the links to the new cases are working.

    U R not alone.

    imho, nmcca deserves less of a HUGE BZ and more of a ‘duh.’ It’s 2009 and this is the US. The idea that courts should make their opinions publicly available is not revolutionary.
