Marquette Law School To Host Military Court

justasc - Fotolia.com

It’s not often that the wheels of military justice turn outside of military courts. And it’s even less often that the public can watch the proceedings. But thanks to the judicial outreach program of the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, their courtroom is open to any interested party tomorrow in Milwaukee.

"This gives the public, including the law students, an opportunity to at least see the appellate stage of a court martial," says Marquette Law Professor Scott Idleman.

Hosted by the Marquette Law School, the oral arguments in the United States v. Staff Sergeant Joshua K. Plant court martial appeal will also include a friend of the court argument presented by third year Marquette Law student, Joshua Bryant.

Bryant, along with Idleman, discuss the rare opportunity on Lake Effect:

Joshua Bryant will present an amicus curiae, or friend of the court, argument tomorrow at the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces hearing scheduled at noon at the Law School. The hearing is open to the public, but registration is required.
