I’ll be on the road for a couple of days, so I’m posting “This Week in Military Justice” a day early. My rate of blogging will likely be diminished until Tuesday.
This week at the Supremes: I’m not aware of any anticipated military justice developments at the Supremes this week, though we continue to await the SG’s response to the Loving cert petition.
This week at CAAF: CAAF will hold its judicial conference on Wednesday and Thursday. The schedule is available here. A registration form is available here. Several CAAFlog contributors will be attending; perhaps we can do some live blogging from the conference.
This week at the CCAs: On Tuesday, the Coast Guard Court will hear oral argument in United States v. Sapp, in which the assigned error is:
I. This Court Should Consider the Unreasonable and Unexplained Post-Trial Delay in Determining the Sentence that Should be Approved under Article 66(c) with particular attention to the following questions:
1. What circumstances short of denial of due process should be considered in deciding whether post-trial delay warrants “Tardif relief”?
2. What are the reasons to grant or deny “Tardif relief” in this case?
The Army Court’s web site is down, so I can’t determine whether ACCA is scheduled to hear any oral arguments this week.
