New published ACCA decision

ACCA issued a published opinion today. United States v. Fisher, __ M.J. ___, No. ARMY 20080012 (A. Ct. Crim. App. Feb. 20, 2009). Here's a link. I'll try to provide a synopsis tomorrow unless one of the other CAAFlog contributors beats me to it.

You really gotta love it. ACCA devotes 9 pages of opinion plus lots of man hours specifying issue- only to find that the amazing error they discovered is harmless. Sheesh.

1. Yes, they distinguished this case from Sapp, because here the TDC did not object.

2. Check n.5, have they not also "suggested" a new requirement for MJ's, assuming the MJ sees the evidence and argument as erroneous.
