First opinion of the Term

CAAF released its first opinion of the Term today, which is available here. United States v. Brown, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-0286/AR (C.A.A.F. Nov. 30, 2007). Judge Stucky for a unanimous court upholding an unpublished ACCA ruling for the government.

Today's ruling results in Guert winning this year's pool. Guert, would you like the t-shirt or the book?

No analysis?

I am mildly surprised that CAAF granted on this case; it doesn't seem an especially close call, in light of Vidal and Hardy.

Wow our readership is getting a little demanding! If a reader has analysis before something is posted by CAAFlog (not just the man, but any contributor) please feel free to leave your thoughts. We will incorporate reader's comments, as we frequently do, in later posted analysis of the case.

I believe that I will take the book. I am wearing two of the t-shirts right now. When you will be in upstate New York colonel?

With all respect to the dead, Guert, Schenectady is not upstate New York. As a born and bred Fultonian, I can say you must be appreicably north of Albany to be a true upstater.

Guert,

I've ordered your book from bn.com. I only hope their delivery person can find the right tombstone to leave it on.

I believe it is right next to Benedict Arnold's in the pauper's cemetery. Shouldn't be too hard to find.
