After a quick trip behind the barricades at RLSO San Diego a few catch up items. BTW, as much as I complain how difficult it is to use the locked down courtroom at San Diego, the funniest bit this time was to see that the TC had the same problem. Twice during our 39(a) the TC had to leave to do something for the judge. On his return the TC had to knock, just like us, to gain entry into the courtroom. I guess if the accused and his counsel, and the prosecutor can’t get in the court-room, that might be an explanation for less court-martials. Anyway.
