CAAF granted review of the following issue in United States v. Dease, No. 12-6001/AF (C.A.A.F. Nov. 14, 2011):  “Whether the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals erred by finding Appellant had abandoned his urine and thus had no reasonable expectation of privacy where Appellant consented to the seizure of his urine and then revoked consent prior to the search of Appellant’s urine.”  Dease was an Article 62 appeal to AFCCA.  CAAF issued a stay of the court-martial along with its grant order.  AFCCA’s decision, which held that the accused didn’t retain a reasonable expectation of privacy after he consented to surrendering it to the government, is available here.  Judge Mathews the Greatest discussed that opinion here.
