Long shot misses the target

Not surprisingly, the application to Chief Justice Roberts in the Morton case, which we previously discussed here, has been denied.

No. 06A987
Title: In Re Thomas A. Morton, Applicant

Lower Ct: United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces
Case Nos.: (07-8009/CG)

~~~Date~~~ ~~~~~~~Proceedings and Orders~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Apr 19 2007 Application (06A987) for a stay pending the filing and disposition of a petition for an extraordinary writ of mandamus or prohibition, submitted to The Chief Justice.
Apr 23 2007 Application (06A987) denied by The Chief Justice.

I'm TAD the next couple of days. Do you think CAAF might actually grant a petition while I'm gone?

No grants, but there is a new CAAF opinion. Erdmann writes for the Court in Paxton, issues were TC comment on right to plead not guilty and remain silent, unreasonable mult. Or mult. for sent, and another issue that escapes me. Judge Erdmann in his typical fashion writes a well organized opinion that tells you what he is going to tell you, tells you, and tells you what he told you. Always a good read.
