Wuterich Court-Martial to Begin--Updated

While the Supremes consider SSgt Wuterich's cert. petition, see our coverage here and the petition here, apparently the show must go on--finally. The LA Times reports here that court-martial proceedings will be held today at Camp Pendleton in the case of Staff Sergent Frank Wuterich. According to informed sources, today's hearing is an Art. 39(a) session regarding the video from CBS News. We'll bring you any updates as they come in.

The LA Times report also states, "The Marine Corps is seeking to reinstate charges against one of those initially charged, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani, the battalion commander." I am not sure if that refers to seeking "expedited" NMCCA review of the unlawful command influence issue or re-preferral. Anyone in the know, please email or post in the comments.
