This just showed up on CAAF’s docket.  Can someone please tell us what the United States has asked CAAF to order NMCCA to do????

Misc. No. 11-8005/NA.  United States, Petitioner v. Navy-Marine Corps of Criminal Appeals, Respondent.  CCA 9501500.  Notice is hereby given that a petition for extraordinary relief in the nature of a writ of mandamus and a motion for a stay of proceedings were filed under Rules 27(a) and 30 on this date.

United States v. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals, __ M.J. ___, No. Misc. 11-8005/NA (C.A.A.F. Oct. 1, 2010).

The CCA docket number belongs to United States v. Parker, a capital case that has been pending on direct appeal for about 15 years.  NMCCA recently issued an order concerning a DuBay hearing in the case. 

If anyone has a copy of the government’s petition for extraordinary relief, please share it with us at

    The Dubay was completed a year ago. Most likley a request for an order to the NMCCA to issue a ruling on something they are sitting on.
