This week at SCOTUS: The Solicitor General waived the Government’s right to respond to the cert petitions in Swiger v. United States and McMurrin v. United States. I’m not aware of any other military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking seven cases:

This week at CAAF: The next scheduled oral argument at CAAF is on October 7, 2014.

This week at the ACCA: The Army CCA will hear oral argument in one case this week, on September 16, 2104, at 10 a.m.

United States v. Brown, No: 20130177

Issue: Whether the military judge abused his discretion by using the term “competent decision” to define “substantially incapacitated” in the jury instruction, thereby lessening the government’s burden of proof for the element of substantial incapacitation.

This week at the AFCCA: The Air Force CCA’s website should no scheduled oral arguments.

This week at the CGCCA: The Coast Guard Trial Docket shows no scheduled oral arguments at the Coast Guard CCA.
