This week at SCOTUS: The petition in Caldwell was distributed for conference on September 26. I’m not aware of any other military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking three cases:

This week at CAAF: The next scheduled oral argument at CAAF is on October 11, 2016.

This week at the ACCA: The Army CCA will hear oral argument in one case this week, on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, at 10 a.m.:

United States v. Bonilla, No. 20131084

Issues:
[I.] WHETHER APPELLANT WAS DENIED THE EFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE OF COUNSEL GUARANTEED BY THE SIXTH AMENDMENT WHEN HIS CIVILIAN DEFENSE COUNSEL FAILED TO CALL A KEY DEFENSE WITNESS TO IMPEACH A.M.

[II.] WHETHER THE MILITARY JUDGE ERRED BY ALLOWING A DAMAGING HEARSAY STATEMENT INTO EVIDENCE AFTER HE ALREADY RULED THE SPECIFIC STATEMENT INADMISSIBLE.

[III.] WHETHER THE MILITARY JUDGE ABUSED HIS DISCRETION IN PROHIBITING THE DEFENSE FROM COMPLETING THEIR CLOSING ARGUMENT.

This week at the AFCCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Air Force CCA is on September 15, 2016.

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

    The same judge as Ahearn?

  2. Ed says:

    Vulture My recollection is that the court in Ahearn did not discuss issue III.

  3. Vulture says:

    Ed.  No that was not one of the issues.  Ahern was about calling attention to the Accused talking to an attorney.  It seems about as  outlandish, though, not to allow a CDC to finish esp. when the Government is going to get a second crack at it.
