This week at SCOTUS: With last week’s denial of cert in Behenna v. United States, No. 12-802, there are now no military justice cases pending SCOTUS action for the first time in over a year.

This week at CAAF: CAAF will hear the final oral argument of the term on Tuesday, June 11, 2013:

LRM v. Kastenberg, No. 13-5006/AF (CAAFlog case page)

Issues:
I. Whether the CCA erred by holding that it lacked jurisdiction to hear A1C LRM’s petition for a writ.
II. Whether the military judge erred by denying A1C LRM the opportunity to be heard through counsel, thereby denying her due process under the Military Rules of Evidence, the Crime Victims’ Rights Act, and the United States Constitution.
III. Whether a writ should be issued.
