For U.S. practitioners: mind the rules

Global Military Justice Reform has received the following communication from the Clerk's Office, U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals:
We are requesting your assistance in helping to get the word out to both military and civilian counsel that when drafting a filing intended for the court, that the filing complies with the requirements under Rule 15 (a) of the Joint Rules and Rule 15.1 (a-g); Rule 15.3 (b); and Rule 15.3 (b)(1) of this Court's Rules of Practice and Procedure. As of late we have been seeing an increase in deviation from these formatting requirements. 
The Clerk of Court may, at its discretion, reject any filing that does not comply and a rejected filing that was submitted to the court would not serve to toll the deadline for submission. 
The Army Court's rules and the Joint Rules can be found here.
