I'm writing an analysis of CAAF's opinion in United States v. Rodriguez, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-0685/AF (C.A.A.F. Apr. 23, 2008). But here's the bottom line up front: Judge Ryan writes the majority opinion in Stuckian/Garnerian BLUF format. Since BLUF is an Army term, I propose three hooahs for Judge Ryan.

1. The dissent got it right.

2. Defense counsel should request a Bill of Particulars when charges allege "diverse occassions."

3. Defense AND Trial Counsel should craft and ask for an instruction that lists each of the alleged occassions, as implied in the dissent.
