This week at SCOTUS: On Friday the Supreme Court docketed a pro se cert. petition in Livingstone v. United States, No. 19-5256, however the petition is not (yet) posted. Assuming it’s the same person, CAAF summarily affirmed the published decision of the Coast Guard CCA. United States v. Livingstone, 78 M.J. 619 (C.G. Ct. Crim. App. 2018) (available here), sum. aff’d, __ M.J. __ (C.A.A.F. Apr. 16, 2019).
In other news, the Solicitor General waived the right to respond to the cert. petition in Richards.
I’m not aware of any other military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking four cases:
- United States v. Briggs, No. 18A1168 (2nd ext. of time to file pet. granted to Jul. 22)
- United States v. Collins, No. 18A1257, (2nd ext. of time to file pet. granted to Aug. 9)
- Richards v. Donovan, et al., No. 19-55 (pet. filed on Jun. 8; resp. waived Jul. 17)
- Livingstone v. United States, No. 19-5256 (pro se pet. docketed Jul. 19)
