More on Public Appellate Arguments.

The A.C.C.A. website now lists United States v. Rosas on it's argument schedule.

CAAFLog notes that the, "[Harvaad] web site doesn't provide any guidance as to members of the public
(including members of the military) without a Harvard i.d. would be
admitted to the argument.]

So, the existence of the argument is a little more public, but access . . .

My personal view is that this is neither intentional nor malicious.  The "lack" of publicity is driven by the natural aversion within DoD to make anything public.  Then there is the general insularity of the military justice system and its uniformed participants.  Even civilian attorneys practicing before the various courts (trial or appeal) are on the outside.  For example, as I have mentioned before, uniformed attorney's can cyber file pleadings, etc., not so civilian counsel practicing in the same case; or the Trial Counsel who gives everything to military counsel but doesn't bother to communicate with civilian counsel, as if ignoring the civilian counsel will result in his/her sidelining.
