Prof. Jonathan Lurie on Article 32 and sexual assault
Prof. Jonathan Lurie
Professor Jonathan Lurie, nationally-recognized legal historian and author of the definitive history of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, has a new article out on military justice. The Transformation of Article 32: Why and What?, 29 Wisc. J. L., Gender & Soc'y 409 (2015), is available here. His bottom line (at 420) is that although there "seems to be almost unanimous agreement" that "the system is broken," "future action is unclear. It remains apparent, however, that the military is incapable of providing consistent and effective resolution of sexual assault cases within its ranks on its own."
