Significant military justice event this week: As discussed in this post, the 3rd Annual Joint Appellate Advocacy Training will be held this week, from Tuesday to Thursday, September 22-24, 2015, at Henderson Hall in Arlington, VA.
This week at SCOTUS: I’m not aware of any military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking one case:
- Buford v. United States, No. 14-601 (SG waived response; pending conf. on Sept. 28) (CAAFlog case page)
This week at CAAF: The first oral argument date for CAAF’s September 2015 Term is October 6, 2015.
This week at the ACCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Army CCA is on October 22, 2015.
This week at the AFCCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Air Force CCA is on September 29, 2015.
This week at the CGCCA: The Coast Guard CCA will hear oral argument in one case this week, on Monday, September 21, 2015, at 10 a.m.:
United States v. Gomez
I. Was referring to the Appellant as a “sexual predator” during opening statements and findings argument plain error?
II: Was it plain error for the military judge to admit evidence in aggravation of two complaining witnesses’ pregnancy complications due to stress related to the trial?
This week at the NMCCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Navy-Marine Corps CCA’s is on October 8, 2015.
