ABOUT THE COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE ARMED FORCES

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces is a five-judge civilian court that hears appeals in criminal cases arising in the Armed Forces. The Court has appellate jurisdiction over four intermediate appellate courts: the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals, the U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals, the U.S. Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals, and the U.S. Coast Guard Court of Criminal Appeals. These four intermediate courts have appellate jurisdiction over courts-martial within their respective services. Courts-martial are military tribunals that have jurisdiction to try service members who are accused of committing crimes punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Courts-martial follow rules of evidence and procedure that are similar to the rules that apply in federal criminal trials in the U.S. District Courts. The U.S. Supreme Court can review decisions of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces by writ of certiorari.

He previously was a law professor and administrator at The George Washington University Law School for more than 25 years. He was also a reserve officer in the U.S. Army, Judge Advocate General's Corps, for more than 28 years.
