The cert petition in New -- the collateral challenge to a court-martial conviction for, among other things, refusal to wear a UN blue beret -- has been distributed for conference on 5 January 2007. The SG had previously waived the right to respond. See "SG waives response in New," 4 Dec 06, available at http://caaflog.blogspot.com/2006/12/sg-waives-response-in-new.html Unless the Court requests a response, the cert petition is doomed to denial. I continue to predict such a request.
