Yesterday CAAF granted review of an issue raise by the appellant personally:

No. 16-0360/AR. U.S. v. Todd D. Sewell. CCA 20130460. Appellant’s petition for grant of review of the decision of the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals is granted on the following issue personally asserted by the Appellant:

WHETHER THE TRIAL COUNSEL COMMITTED PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT BY MAKING IMPROPER ARGUMENT ON THE FINDINGS.

Briefs will be filed under Rule 25.

The CCA’s opinion is available here.

This is the third Grostefon issue granted this term; the first was in United States v. Caldwell, No. 16-0091/AR (CAAFlog case page), and the second was in United States v. Nieto, No. 16-0301/AR (discussed here). All three are Army cases.
