Pro se Marine Corps cert petition

On 6 August, the Supreme Court docketed a pro se IFP cert petition filed by a Marine on 25 June 2007. Phillips v. United States, No. 07-5716. CAAF rejected his challenge to the execution of contingent confinement at United States v. Phillips, 64 M.J. 410 (C.A.A.F. 2007), and denied reconsideration on 5 June 2007. Can any of our legion of sea service posters -- living or dead -- explain why this cert petition was filed pro se IFP?

Someone, please, do tell. Has the Army's affliction spread to the other divisions? Surely, Navy-MC wouldn't refuse to file a sure loser cert petition. It's their duty to file it, right?
