CAAF has granted review of a speedy trial issue: "WHETHER THE ARMY COURT ERRED WHEN IT RULED THAT APPELLANT'S RIGHT TO A SPEEDY TRIAL UNDER ARTICLE 10, UCMJ, WAS NOT VIOLATED." United States v. Thompson, __ M.J. ___, No. 09-0145/AR (C.A.A.F. June 11, 2009). An unpublished ACCA decision granting an Article 62 appeal in the case is available here. United States v. Thompson, No. ARMY MISC. 20060901 (A. Ct. Crim. App. Nov. 30, 2006). I assume there's a more recent ACCA opinion in the case, but I can't find it online.
