I’ve now had a chance to read the petition for extraordinary relief in Templar v. Federal Bureau of Prisons, __ M.J. __, No. 11-8010/NA (C.A.A.F. Nov. 17, 2010), which we discussed here.  The petition didn’t argue that the thou-shalt-not-seek-clemency-or-parole portion of the PTA was invalid under Tate.  It was a pro se petition that failed to develop a plausible — or even coherent, really — case for relief.

    You should post a copy. Those things are always entertaining to read.

    I think the only reasonable conclusion is that Thomas/Templar realized that Tate was wrongly decided.
