Cert denied x 2

Today's SCOTUS order list included the denial of two military cert petitions: Wilson v. United States, 07-1447, in which CAAF held that mistake of fact as to age isn't a defense to sodomy with a child, and Tillery v. United States, 07-11102, a pro se IFP case.

Two military cert petitions remain pending. Rigby v. United States, No. 07-1549, is an Army DAD cert petition that looks like a Wilson trailer. The SG waived response on Thursday, but it hasn't yet been distributed for conference. And the biggie: Stevenson v. United States, No. 07-1397, in which the requested response from the SG is due on 3 July.

An English law of 1256 decreed that in leap years, the leap day and the day before are to be reckoned as one day for the purpose of calculating when a full year has passed. Thus, a person born on February 29 legally reaches the age of 18 on February 28 of the relevant year.

So, I'm safe, right? I think she said she was English.

Isn't something else due at SCOTUS on the 3rd?
