Stillman v. H.M. The Queen, SCC No. 37701

Of possible interest to readers of Global Military Justice Reform: the motion for intervention in support of the application for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada in Stillman v. H.M. The Queen, SCC No. 37701, filed by Ottawa attorneys Michel W. Drapeau and Joshua Juneau on behalf of the editor. It is available here. At issue is whether the military nexus test must be met in order for a court-martial to exercise jurisdiction over offenses under § 130(1)(a) of the National Defence Act. The decision of the Court Martial Appeal Court can be found here.
