This week at SCOTUS: I’m not aware of any military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking two cases:

This week at CAAF: CAAF has completed its oral argument calendar for the term. Details about this terms cases are available at our 2015 Term of Court page.

This week at the ACCA: The Army CCA will hear oral argument in one case this week, on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, at 10 a.m.:

United States v. Bonilla, No. 20131084

Issues:
I. Whether the military judge erred by allowing a damaging hearsay statement into evidence after he already ruled the specific statement inadmissible.
II. Whether the military judge abused his discretion in prohibiting the defense from completing their closing argument.

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

This week at the CGCCA: The Coast Guard CCA’s oral argument schedule shows no scheduled oral arguments.

This week at the NMCCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Navy-Marine Corps CCA is on June 21, 2016.

    Zach,
     
    Do you have access to the briefs for Bonilla?  A military judge prohibiting the defense from completing closing argument, if true, certainly raises an eyebrow.  I’d like to read the Government’s recitation of the facts, and compare it to the Appellant’s recitation of the facts.

    KF: It’s my case. Argument has been postponed, but I can send them.
