HUGE news: Government doesn't seek cert in Lopez de Victoria

Yesterday's daily journal entries included big news: the government is NOT seeking cert to review CAAF's holding in United States v. Lopez de Victoria, 66 M.J. 67 (C.A.A.F. 2008), that it has jurisdiction to review a CCA's ruling on an Article 62 appeal. See United States v. Lopez de Victoria, __ M.J. ___, No. 07-6004/AR (C.A.A.F. Apr. 24, 2008) (order). So Lopez de Victoria won't be the case to force the Kabul Klipper into a Florida-to-Washington Golden CAAF drive. All eyes now turn to Denedo v. United States, 66 M.J. 114 (C.A.A.F. 2008), in which a cert petition is due on 3 July, absent a request for an extension.

Make your predictions now: will the Kabul Klipper owe Paul Clement one gilded bovine statuette come next term's long conference?
