This week at CAAF: CAAF's oral argument calendar indicates that sessions are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. But no cases are scheduled to be heard on those dates. Presumably there will be no actual sessions on those days.
This week at the CCAs: On Wednesay, ACCA is scheduled to hear oral argument in United States v. Goodwin, No. ARMY 20011125. The assignments of error to be argued are:
I. Appellant's trial defense counsel was ineffective when he informed the members during his opening statement that the crimes occurred because appellant was desperate for money, he failed to cross examine government witnesses, and he conceded appellant's actions were "misleading" in his closing argument.
II. It took the government from 7 April 2006 to 19 December 2007 to conduct and prepare the record for appellant's Dubay hearing, and this dilatory delay warrants relief.
