Salvador Diaz wants more time - now that's serendipity!

After his fifteen minutes in the title role of Diaz v. JAG, his case was unceremoniously dispatched (along with a couple dozen others) in the Sept 11, 2006 Daily Journal:

"In each of the above cases, on consideration of the granted issue, in light of United States v. Moreno, 63 M.J. 129 (C.A.A.F. 2006), and United States v. Allison, 63 M.J. 365 (C.A.A.F. 2006), assuming that the Appellant was denied the due process right to speedy post-trial review and appeal, that error was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt. Accordingly, the decision of the United States Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals is affirmed."

CAAF denied a motion for reconsideration some time later. Don't think he's going to recapture the magic.
