Here's a CAAF grant that isn't even on CAAF's online daily journal yet. In United States v. MacOmber, __ M.J. ___, No. 08-0072/AF (C.A.A.F. Apr. 25, 2008) (order), CAAF granted review to determine whether the military judge erred in holding that a military magistrate had probable cause to authorize a search of A1C MacOmber's dorm room and personal computer for child pornography. The Air Force Court's opinion, available here, discussed whether OSI agents' failure to advise the magistrate that some of its information was 14-months-old invalidated the probable cause determination. No, ruled the Air Force Court. United States v. MacOmber, No. ACM 36693 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. Aug. 31, 2007) (per curiam).
