Changes proposed to courts of criminal appeals joint rules

Today's Federal Register includes a notice of proposed changes to the Joint Rules of Appellate Procedure for the Courts of Criminal Appeals, 83 Fed. Reg. 16841 (2018). The changes implement the Military Justice Act of 2016 and the 2018 amendments to the Manual for Courts-Martial. According to the notice, the text of the proposed changes can be found on www.regulations.gov under Dkt. No. DoD-2018-OS-0019. As of this post, however, they are not available at that site. Further information can be obtained from Lieutenant Commander Rachel E. Trest, rachel.e.trest@navy.mil, (202) 685-4621. Comments must be received no later than May 17, 2018.

Update: the proposed rules are now available here.
