Here’s the QP from the Neal cert petition:

We’ve posted the full cert petition here.

    Here’s is one lawyer and military justice practitioner hoping that the Supremes step up to the challenge, grant the petition and overturn Article 120. The statute is an abomination — clearly designed by the feminist cabal to result in more convictions on less than compelling evidence. Unfortunately, many convictions have been obtained under this statute and what were actually “post-coital remorse” cases have become life-time sex offender brands for men who chose the wrong partner.
