Did anyone get the impression from the Daily Journal that someone had touched a nerve with the petition for reconsideration in US v. Dearing? Available here http://www.armfor.uscourts.gov/journal/2006Jrnl/2006Nov.htm. It was one of the longest and most citation filled denials I have ever seen. Maybe inconsistent arguments are a new focus for CAAF? I recall that Chief Judge Dorman of the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals spread the word, so to speak, that inconsistent arguments were "disfavored" at NMCCA when he was the Chief Judge. Maybe CAAF's staff includes some recently departed NMCCA judges?
