    Re: Allen certified question.
     
    Yes, Military Judges abuse their discretion when they suppress voluntary statements by the Accused pursuant to the Fifth Amendment.  Why do they even need oral arguments for something that obvious?

    kf–I seem to recall that arguments are not evidence.
     
    Neither are certified issues.
