Case Summary: GCM conviction of violating a general order, making a false official statement, and wrongful use of a controlled substance. Certified issues question: (1) did the lower court err in finding the convening authority abused his discretion under R.C.M. 1109 by acting after Appellee submitted R.C.M. 1106 clemency matters but before the military judge issued his written post-trial ruling?; (2) did the lower court err in finding that the staff judge advocate's review was uninformed under R.C.M. 1109 where the review was completed after Appellee submitted R.C.M. 1106 matters and review of the military judge's post-trial ruling was not required under R.C.M. 1109?; and (3) did the lower court err in finding that the post-action written ruling was a substantial omission where the ruling was not an R.C.M. 1106 matter and nothing the new rules required the convening authority to consider the ruling prior to taking action under R.C.M. 1109 even if included in the record of trial?

NOTE: Counsel for each side will be allotted 20 minutes to present oral argument.
