United States v. Story.  Here the issue is two-fold: what is the response when the members want to call a witness, and what is permissible on appeal to demonstrate prejudice.  ACCA found error in the military judge denying the members an opportunity to call a witness.  On appeal, ACCA found that documents submitted by appellate government and appellate defense could not be considered.  This seems odd, because the defense is trying to show prejudice from the error and the government is trying to show lack of prejudice.

When the members returned, immediately after calling the court to order and accounting for the parties, the following colloquy ensued:

MJ: Members, the bailiff indicated that you had a question? Colonel Meyer is shaking her head.
