We’ve now obtained a copy of the Mullins cert petition, No. 10-710, which we’ve posted here.  Here’s the QP:

Whether the analysis used by the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces to test for due process violations arising from excessive appellate delay contradicts this Court’s decisions in Strickland v. Washington, Ake v. Oklahoma, and United States v. Bagley, and the tests used by a vast majority of the circuits, by testing for prejudice twice: first, in determining whether a due process violation exists; and second, in determining whether such violation was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt.
