This week at SCOTUS: I’m not aware of any military justice developments at the Supreme Court.

This week at CAAF: CAAF will hear oral argument in two cases this week, both on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, beginning at 9:30:

United States v. Lewis, No.19-0109/AR (CAAFlog case page)

Issue: Whether the military judge abused his discretion when he suppressed SPC Lewis’s third statement as involuntary under Military Rule of Evidence 304.

Note: This case is an Article 62 interlocutory appeal, and so the only briefs are the initial pleadings to CAAF.

Hasan v. U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals, and United States, No. 19-0054/AR (CAAFlog case page)

Major Hasan seeks extraordinary relief in the nature of a writ of mandamus ordering the judges of the Army Court of Criminal Appeals to disqualify themselves from his case.
