  1. (Former) ArmyTC says:

    I believe a cert petition in United States v. Katso (or Katso v. United States now…) was filed with SCOTUS last week.  

  2. The Silver Fox says:

    This is the second oral argument in Richards.  Post DuBay, the Court is revisiting the allegation (now with more facts) that Appellant’s pretrial attorney committed IAC by discussing alleged confidential information with the prosecutor.

  3. Michael Lowrey says:

    The oral argument for Richards is now available online. Maliwat hasn’t been uploaded yet.

  4. Michael Lowrey says:

    Maliwat has now been uploaded as well.
