The government has asked the Supreme Court of Canada to stay the recent decision of the Court Martial Appeal Court in the Beaudry case. The motion remains under consideration, but in the meantime charges in two cases have been withdrawn from the court-martial without prejudice. David Pugliese reports on the matter here for the Ottawa Citizen. No word on the other 38 cases that the government says could be affected by Beaudry.
The charge in one of the two dropped cases dates to 1999.
