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

This week at CAAF: CAAF has completed its oral argument calendar for the term. A detailed list of this term’s cases is available on our October 2016 Term Page. The first oral argument date for the next term is October 10, 2017.

This week at the ACCA: The Army CCA’s website shows no scheduled oral arguments.

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 September 14, 2017.

    And today’s phrase of the day from David Sheldon:  Skunk at the lawn party.  
     
    I find it it interesting that the Navy is suddenly concerned with efficiency and is attempting to take away Barry’s four defense counsel.  I wonder how many motions of this kind have been filed in the past when defense counsel table looks like a jury box?

    K fischer,
    This type of fight over counsel is very common in the Navy-Marine Corps appellate world.  The Defense often argues that appellate defense counsel should stay on for subsequent trial court proceedings (to include full merits rehearings), whereas the Government argues that appellate counsel are detailed solely for that purpose and that trial defense counsel are detailed for trial court proceedings.  This is a very common fight.

    Okay.  Thanks for the info.  I stand corrected in my accusatory tone.

    So why is this an issue in the Navy-Marine Corps, but not an issue in the other three branches?
