N.Y. Times Sunday Magazine article on sexual assault in the military

The November 30, 2014 issue of The New York Times Sunday Magazine contains a lengthy and powerful article by Robert Draper titled "In the Company of Men." It is available online now, under the headline "The Military's Rough Justice on Sexual Assault." It's about the U.S. Air Force's Wilkerson case, which gave a big push to reform efforts. It's also about the people, including a smart, principled Air Force lawyer. There's a book or movie (or both) in this, but is there more legislation?

  1. Please check out my law review article "Where Is the Justice? The Sexual Assault Crisis Plaguing the Military and a Lack of Meaningful Justice" My article discusses how, although victim's can refuse to testify at Article 32 hearings, key and civilian witnesses can still be required to undergo rigorous cross examination via compelled depositions. It also discusses the need for MRE 412 (Rape Shield Law) to be effectively applied.
