Air Force Times article on changes to rules governing public access to Air Force military justice records
Here’s an Air Force Times article on changes that the Air Force is making to its rules governing public release of military justice information. The article includes a wide-ranging discussion of impediments to reporters’ access to military justice information.
It just so happens that earlier today, I submitted a FOIA request to Navy OJAG asking for a copy of the NMCCA briefs in Salyerto post on CAAFlog. (NMCCA’s rules provide that “[p]ress inquiries and other inquiries from outside OJAG shall be directed to the Public Affairs Office or the Criminal Law Division (Code 20) of OJAG.” N-M. Ct. Crim App. R. 1.3(d).)
It will be interesting to follow the progress of that FOIA request and compare it to the experiences reported in the Air Force Times article.
