CAAF decides Stefan

United States v. Stefan is a 5-0 opinion written by Judge Stucky.  In a nutshell:

We granted review to determine whether the chief of  military justice was disqualified from preparing the addendum to the staff judge advocate’s recommendation (SJAR) because, before trial, she had caused the charges to be served on the accused.   We hold that she was disqualified under Article 6(c), Uniform
Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), 10 U.S.C. § 806(c) (2006), and Rule for Courts-Martial (R.C.M.) 1106(b), but Appellant was not prejudiced.
