A well placed source informs me that S.2052, the Equal Justice for United States Military Personnel Act of 2007, was held over today in the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill, as discussed previously on CAAFlog here and here, co-sponsored by Senators Arlen Specter and Russ Feingold, will give the Supreme Court certiorari jurisdiction over CAAF cases where an appellant was denied review or denied a petition for extraordinary relief. It will likely come up for consideration after the August recess. Here is a link to the remarks of Senator Feinstein on the bill's introduction last year.
