We recently noted that ACCA will be holding oral argument next month in United States v. Lynndie England. Now we learn that CAAF will also be scrutinizing the legal fallout from Abu Ghraib. CAAF has granted review in United States v. Harman, __ M.J. ___, No. 08-0804/AR (C.A.A.F. June 11, 2009), where the granted issue is "WHETHER THE EVIDENCE IS LEGALLY SUFFICIENT TO SUSTAIN THE FINDINGS OF GUILTY BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT." ACCA's decision in the case, which we discussed here, is published at 66 M.J. 710.
