SG waives response to unjurisdictional military cert petition

We previously discussed the pro se IFP cert petition in Gowanlock v. United States, No. 07-6927. The case doesn't fall within the Supremes' statutory cert jurisdiction because CAAF denied review in the case. On 15 October, the SG waived his right to respond to the petition -- obviously an easier route to the same result compared to moving to dismiss it.

There is no change in the status of either H.R. 3174 or S. 2052.
