This week in military justice -- 5 April 2009 edition

This week at the Supreme Court: I know of no expected military justice activity at the Supremes this week.

This week at CAAF: CAAF has no scheduled oral arguments this week.

This week at the CCAs: ACCA will be hearing oral argument on Wednesday in United States v. McNaughton, No. ARMY 20090089, on this assignment of error: "The military judge erred as a matter of law when she dismissed Specification 2 of Charge II on the grounds that assimilation of a state aggravated incest statute is preempted by Article 120, UCMJ."

This week at the court-martial trial level: The court-martial of Sgt Ryan Weemer for allegedly shooting an unarmed detainee during combat operations in Fallujah will likely go to the members early this week.

This week in CLE: On Thursday, the JAA American Inn of Court will present a lecture by Major General Daniel V. Wright, the Deputy Judge Advocate General of the Army, called "Civility and Professionalism in the Courts."

Knowing both Pete Masciola and Bill Kuebler, this does seem odd.
