Here’s a link to a Washington Times story about a military judge’s ruling in an Air Force general court-martial, dismissing sexual assault charges with prejudice because the convening authority (a 2-star) “directed the trial counsel not to enforce their subpoenas, [resulting in] the government abdicat[ing] its obligations to the justice system.” The military judge’s 13-page ruling is available here.
