  • 13 (Project Outreach)

A note on the calendar explains that the first two hearings “will occur in advance of the formal calendar start of the term, in order to support two Project Outreach commitments by the Court. Future Hearing Notices will provide the details on the venues and times.”

CAAF modified its term to begin on October 1 – rather than September 1 – effective in 2016 (change discussed here).

The 24 scheduled oral argument dates for the 2018 term is a significant reduction from the 30 scheduled dates for the 2017 term (of which only 19 were actually used), and the 27 scheduled dates for the 2016 term (of which only 23 were actually used).

    Anyone know why there are so few arguments?

  2. Michael Lowrey says:

    The reason CAAF has fewer oral argument dates scheduled is probably just that there are fewer cases in the pipeline. I count only five pending cases CAAF has granted cert on and ordered briefs filed (Criswell, Hamilton, Hale, Eugene, and Bodoch) plus one case certified by the government (Cooper). That only fills up the September Project Outreach dates plus the two October hearing dates.

    Thanks ML.  Seems like a lot of cases getting sent back with summary Hills reversals as well.  I just hope the Court doesn’t slim it’s docket down to 20 cases a year.  To be honest, the CCA’s could use more oversight.  Also – military trial lawyers on both defense and prosecution could use more guidance.
