Wuterich Writ Day

Last Thursday was Wuterich Writ Day at CAAF. CAAF received two petitions for extraordinary relief in Wuterich, one from SSgt Wuterich himself and the other from CBS News. In re Wuterich, __ M.J. ___, No. 08-8021/MC (C.A.A.F. July 10, 2008); CBS Broadcasting v. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals, __ M.J. ___, No. 08-8020/MC (C.A.A.F. July 10, 2008). One curious aspect of the latter petition for a writ of prohibition and/or mandamus is that it names SSgt Wuterich as a respondent. I'm not sure what relief CBS Broadcasting would be seeking from SSgt Wuterich. I'm going to try to go to CAAF at some point tomorrow and get a copy of CBS's petition for extraordinary relief. If I get it, I'll post it on CAAFlog.com.

Thank you for covering this story. I get better, clearer, information here than anywhere else on the web.

Didn't a CBS female reporter have sex with Wuterich and is now having his baby? Does CAAF have jurisdiction over the baby?
