Following up on CAAFlog's post, the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals yesterday did deny the Judge Advocate General's petition for en banc rehearing in the Chessani Art. 62 appeal of Judge Folsom's unlawful command influence ruling. Here is a link to a partial copy of the Court's order, the Thomas Moore Law Center website doesn't have the full copy. If anyone has the full copy, please email it to me at email@example.com. I am guessing the ruling had something to say about lateral taint vs. appearance of unlawful command influence, as raised in LtCol Chessani's opposition brief, here, courtesy of his counsel the Thomas Moore Law Center. Here is our prior link to the government motion for rehearing.
