And a third opinion

On a night when CAAF released its blockbuster opinion in Lopez de Victoria, we can't expect many people to want to go see the small indie release of United States v. Glenn, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-0407/AR (C.A.A.F. Feb. 26, 2008), available here. Glenn deals with the less-than-scintillating issue of whether certain sentencing evidence required the military judge to reopen the providence inquiry to further explore Private Glenn's mental responsibility. In a unanimous opinion by Judge Baker, CAAF says no.

This is a victory for the defense bar. There are many occasions where a DC wants to introduce mental issues in E&M, while preserving the plea deal.
