US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces will be making their first-ever visit to Tucson
On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 9:30-10:45, the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces will be making their first-ever visit to Tucson. This event will be especially exciting as our students have been invited to file and argue an amicus brief, and are doing so under the guidance of Dean Willie Jordan-Curtis and Professor Paul Bennett.
United States (Appellee) v. Bruce L. Kelly (Appellant) No. 12-0524/AR
Counsel for Appellant: Capt Ian M. Guy, JA, USA
Counsel for Appellee: Capt Sean Fitzgibbon, JA, USA
GCM conviction of possession of child pornography, larceny of military property and filing a false claim. Granted issues question (1) whether the military judge abused his discretion when he failed to suppress evidence of child pornography discovered on Appellant's personal computer in the course of an unreasonable search conducted to find contraband after Appellant was wounded in Iraq and medically evacuated to the United States; and (2) whether the Army Court erred in creating a new exception to the Fourth Amendment when it held that the Government's search of Appellant's personal computer was reasonable because the Government was not "certain" or "absolutely clear" that it would be returned to the wounded-warrior Appellant.
