Yesterday CAAF granted review in this Army case:

No. 19-0087/AR. U.S. v. Deontray D. Coleman. CCA 20170013. On consideration of the petition for grant of review of the decision of the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals, it is ordered that said petition is granted on the following assigned issue:

WHETHER SPECIFICATION 1 OF CHARGE VII IS MULTIPLICIOUS WITH SPECIFICATION 1 OF CHARGE I, AS THEY ARE PART OF THE SAME TRANSACTION.

Briefs (on the issue of multiplicity and not unreasonable multiplication of charges) will be filed under C.A.A.F. R. 25.

The CCA’s opinion is available here but does not address the granted issue.
