This week at SCOTUS: The Solicitor General received additional extensions of time to file responses to the cert. petitions in Dalmazzi and in Cox, both to May 15, 2017. Additionally, a petition for rehearing was filed in Howell (cert. denied Mar. 27). I’m not aware of any other military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking four cases:

This week at CAAF: CAAF will hear oral argument in three cases this week, all on Tuesday, April 25, 2017:
