Reloading the docket cont': chambering one more case

On Tuesday, CAAF granted review and ordered briefing in an Army case:

WHETHER APPELLANT'S PLEAS TO ALL CHARGES AND SPECIFICATIONS ARE NOT PROVIDENT BECAUSE THE MILITARY JUDGE DID NOT EXPLAIN THE DEFENSE OF LACK OF MENTAL RESPONSIBILITY TO APPELLANT, DID NOT SATISFY HERSELF THAT COUNSEL HAD EVALUATED THE VIABILITY OF THE DEFENSE, AND DID NOT ELICIT FACTS FROM APPELLANT THAT NEGATED THE DEFENSE.

United States v. Glenn, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-0407/AR (C.A.A.F. June 26, 2007).

There is no electronic trace of the opinion below, suggesting that ACCA blew off the issue in a one-liner.

"suggesting that ACCA blew off the issue in a one-liner"

Sounds like CAAFlog's disdain for the Army extends beyond its Defense Appellate Division...
