Reversal rate on appeal

If you are concerned or unhappy with the high rate of “affirmed” – often without relief – U.S. courts-martials, perhaps you should consider moving to India.

My good friend and colleague Gene Fidell atĀ, reports on the 90% rate of reversal of court-martial convictions.

Further to yesterday’s post this article from the Times of India reports that the High Court has set aside decisions of theĀ Armed Forces Tribunal about 90% of the time since the Delhi High Court decided in 2011 that AFT decisions were subject to review in the High Court as well as directly by the Supreme Court.
