This week at SCOTUS: The petition in Brown was presumably denied on Friday. The other active petitions are scheduled for conference. I’m not aware of any other military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking four cases:

This week at CAAF: CAAF will hear oral argument in three cases this week:

Monday, December 16, 2013:

United States v. Danylo, No. 13-0570/AF (CAAFlog case page)

Issues:
I. Whether the military judge erred when he only considered the period of time of appellant’s Article 62, UCMJ, appeal for the purpose of his speedy trial motion.
II. Whether the appellant was denied his Sixth Amendment right to a speedy trial when his court-martial occurred 350 days after he was placed in pretrial confinement.
