Upcoming Code Committee meeting

Now that I'm back from some travel, I'm catching up on my Federal Register reading. This notice caught my eye:

This notice announces the forthcoming public meeting of the Code Committee established by Article 146(a), Uniform Code of Military Justice, 10 U.S.C. 946(a), to be held at the Courthouse of the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, 450 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20442-0001, at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 15, 2007. The agenda for this meeting will include consideration of proposed changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Manual for Courts-Martial, United States, and other matters relating to the operation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice throughout the Armed Forces.


72 Fed. Reg. 14527 (March 28, 2007).

A similar announcement is on CAAF's web site.

That meeting will be the day before CAAF's judicial conference starts.

The JSC's briefing of the Code Committee should be interesting this year in light of my favorite UCMJ amendment. Hopefully the JSC will have some recommendations from the services regarding policy limits on the implementation of the amended Art. 2. Anyone know who the public members of the Code Committee are this year? Maybe we'll see SJ Everett renew his motion for discretionary review of military commissions and DoD administrative action against servicemebers by CAAF.

I know that SJ Everett is a beloved character in the military justice community (at least he was within the N-M Appellate Government Division my two summers there), but he was never exactly a judicial minimalist when it came to CMA jurisdiction, was he?
