I’ve been advised that the President just signed an executive order amending the Manual for Courts-Martial to implement the Military Justice Act of 2016.

More to follow.

Update: it’s official.

    Is there a link to Annex 1?

  2. Isaac Kennen says:

    The White House’s website did not include the annexes as promulgated.  But, we do have access to the annexes as they existed at the time that the Department of Defense invited public comment – see the Regulations.gov docket entry here
     
    When the promulgated versions are released, I guess we will see whether any changes were made to the draft documents as a result of the public’s commentary.

    The annexes will be published in the Federal Register. Hopefully on Monday. I’m watching for them. 

    I expect a few changes from the final draft from the DoD (the predecisional version many service members have used for training).
