10 . . . 9 . . .8

Now that CAAF has issue two opinions today, there are just 8 cases remaining to be decided this term.

The 8 remaining cases are:

United States v. Elfayoumi, No. 07-0346/AR (argued 26 Feb) (members challenge case)

United States v. Lee, No. 07-0725/MC (argued 11 Mar) (trial defense counsel conflict case)

United States v. Ober, No. 07-0722/AR (argued 17 Mar) (child pornography elements, inter alia, case)

United States v. Czachorowski, No. 07-0379/NA (argued 18 Mar) (hearsay/confrontation case)

United State v. Bright, No. 07-0269/AR (argued 8 Apr) (legal sufficiency case)

United States v. Wilcox, No. 05-0159/AR (argued 10 Apr) (First Amendment free speech case)

United States v. Roach, No. 07-0870/AF (argued 6 May) (appellate IAC case)

United States v. Bartlett, No. 07-0636/AR (argued 6 May) (Article 25 case)

Today's Melson decision resolved the last of the five Air Force JAG certified cases of the term. The Air Force Court was an impressive 4-for-5 in those cases. In the only other specified issue case to be orally argued this term, CAAF overturned ACCA. United States v. Gutierrez, __ M.J. __, No. 08-5004/AR (C.A.A.F. May 27, 2008).
