Here is a link to today's SCOTUS decision in United States v. Denedo, No. 08-267, affirming (5-4) CAAF's holding that former servicemembers may seek coram nobis review of their convictions after their appeals are final. SCOTUS finds that the ability to seek review derives from the All Writs Act and Art. 66, UCMJ and is not trumped by Art. 73 or 76. More analysis tonight from CAAFlog.
