Today CAAF issued the final decision of the term, reversing the Army CCA and reinstating the military judge’s order that dismissed a child sexual assault case with prejudice as a remedy for Government discovery violations, in United States v. Stellato, No. 15-0315/AR (CAAFlog case page) (link to slip op.).
In addition to CAAF’s decision in Arness (CAAFlog case page) (analyzed here), and its decision affirming the death sentence in Akbar (CAAFlog case page) (decision mentioned here), the court yesterday also decided United States v. Sullivan, No. 15-0186/CG (CAAFlog case page), rejecting the appellant’s assignments of error.
All of the term’s opinions (with brief summaries) are listed on our September 2014 Term of Court page. However, I have not yet updated the page to reflect the decisions in Akbar, Sullivan, and Stellato (I will do that after I complete the opinion analysis for each case).
Annual End o’ Term stats to follow.
