Law & Order: Dearing Part 63

In the ever continuing saga, today's Daily Journal (well technically Thursday's, but it was posted today) lists yet another U.S. v. Dearing extraordinary writ. Someone please tell me the guy isn't still sitting in post-trial confinement while great criminal (law) minds run around trying to figure out what to do with the case? Here is the post from the Daily Journal:

Misc. No. 07-8011/NA. Brian DEARING, Petitioner, v. United States, Respondent. CCA 200100291. Notice is hereby given that a petition for extraordinary relief in the nature of a writ of habeas corpus and writ of mandamus was filed under Rule 27(a) on March 19, 2007, and placed on the docket this date. On consideration thereof, it is ordered that the Judge Advocate General of the Navy appoint counsel to represent Petitioner and Respondent herein, and that Respondent show cause by March 27, 2007, why the requested relief should not be granted.

I think at least one judge, though maybe all five, may be a little annoyed if this is the same issue CAAFlog discussed over the last four months, including here, here, and here. Someone in the know, please let us know.

Notice the quick turn around time on this one, the order is dated 22 March and the government must show cause by 27 March. Five days seems pretty quick, even for an ex-writ.
