The summer doldrums continue…
This week at SCOTUS: I’m not aware of any new military justice developments at the Supreme Court. The active military cert petitions are Fry v. United States, No. 11-1395, which is pending a response from the Solicitor General (due August 13), and Stanley v. United States, No. 11-1500, which is pending conference on September 24.
This week at CAAF: CAAF is in its summer recess and is not scheduled to hear oral arguments until October.

This week at the AFCCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Air Force CCA is on October 11, 2012.
This week at the CGCCA: The Coast Guard Trial Docket shows no pending cases at the Coast Guard CCA.
This week at the NMCCA: The Navy-Marine Corps CCA will hear oral argument in United States v. Brown on Wednesday, August 8, 2012:
(I) Whether appellant was denied his due process right to a fair trial when the military judge allowed a victim advocate to accompany the complaining witness to the witness stand during her testimony and announced to the members that the attendant was the victim’s “advocate”?
(II) Whether the testimony of the nurse practitioner who conducted a sexual assault forensic exam on the complaining witness should have been excluded?
