As reported below, the White House announced yesterday, here, nominated Kevin A. Ohlson to be a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.  Mr. Ohlson’s bio is contained on the announcement page.  He is currently serving as the Chief of the newly created Professional Misconduct Review Unit in the Department of Justice.  His nomination, if confirmed, will add a fourth former judge advocate to the court.

I note that the page also has the nomination for Army General Counsel, who is also a former judge advocate, Brad Carsonis (“an associate professor of business law at the University of Tulsa, where he is also Director of the National Energy Policy Institute”).

    “His nomination, if confirmed, will add a fourth former judge advocate to the court.”

    More precisely, his nomination, if confirmed, will keep four former judge advocates on the Court. Of course, Ohlson is replacing Chief Judge Effron, a former judge advocate; the other three are Judges Erdmann, Stucky, and Ryan.
