New military cert petition

The Supremes have docketed a new military cert petition in the case of Thomas v. United States, No. 08-117. Darrin MacKinnon, Esq., is the petitioner's counsel. CAAF summarily granted and affirmed in the case, which was returning to CAAF following a remand to the Navy-Marine Corps Court. United States v. Thomas, __ M.J. ___, No. 06-0918/MC (C.A.A.F. Apr. 25, 2008) (summary disposition). The previous remand was to clarify "ambiguity as to the affirmed findings." United States v. Thomas, 65 M.J. 250 (C.A.A.F. 2007) (summary disposition). NMCCA then tweaked the findings in an unpublished opinion but nevertheless affirmed the original sentence. United States v. Thomas, No. NMCCA 200401149 (N-M. Ct. Crim. App. June 19, 2007).

If anyone knows the QP, please post it.
