This week at SCOTUS: On September 28, 2017, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Dalmazzi v. United States, No. 16-961, Cox, et al., v. United States, No. 16-1017, and Ortiz v. United States, No. 16-1423, consolidating the cases and directing additional briefing on whether the Court has jurisdiction over those where CAAF vacated its grant of review. They are the first military cases to be granted cert. since United States v. Denedo, 556 U.S. 904 (2009). Our coverage of these cases will continue under the heading of Dalmazzi v. United States, No. 16-961 (CAAFlog case page) (SCOTUSblog case page).
In other SCOTUS news, the cert. petitions in Abdirahman, et at., and Alexander were distributed for conference on Oct. 13. Additionally, an extension of time to file a cert. petition was granted in Richards v. United States, No. 17A338, until November 10, 2017. I’m not aware of any other military justice developments at the Supreme Court, where I’m tracking six cases:
This week at CAAF: The next scheduled oral argument at CAAF is on October 10, 2017.
This week at the ACCA: The Army CCA’s website shows no scheduled oral arguments.
This week at the AFCCA: The next scheduled oral argument at the Air Force CCA is on October 24, 2017. The argument will be heard at the Florida International University College of Law.
This week at the CGCCA: The Coast Guard CCA has a new website, but the link to its docket doesn’t work.
This week at the NMCCA: The Navy-Marine Corps CCA’s website shows no scheduled oral arguments.
