Ask and ye shall receive. Here is the writ appeal petition filed on 18 Sep 08 by Mr. Ali challenging UCMJ jurisdiction in his case. See our prior coverage here. Mr. Ali is challenging jurisdiction on a number of fronts. Some are expected, that Congress exceeded its authority in amending Art. 2(a)(10) and permitting his court-martial, and others are not, arguing that because no implementing regulations are in place the Court does not have jurisdiction. I'll post more substantive analysis later. Enjoy!
