We noted here that on 4 March, the Navy-Marine Corps Appellate Government Division sought an enlargement of time to provide the Judge Advocate General of the Navy an opportunity to certify United States v. Burk to CAAF. We'll know soon whether Burk will be certified or not. In a daily journal update posted today, CAAF granted the enlargement request, but "only up to and including March 30, 2009, and absent extraordinary circumstances, no further extension of time will be granted in this case." United States v. Burk, __ M.J. ___, No. 09-5001/MC (C.A.A.F. March 10, 2009) (order).
