This week at SCOTUS: I’m not aware of any military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where there is one active petition for cert and one petition for a writ of mandamus in military justice cases:
- In Re Earl A. Partington, No. 13-414 (CAAFlog coverage of the Partington case)
- Lusk v. United States, No. 13-403 (cert presumably denied after conference on Nov. 1)
