Right-sizing III

Some revised numbers have come in on the size of the U.S. military trial bench. Using the same overall methodology as the original post, i.e., to include counting each reservist as 1/12 of an active duty judge, the total now stands at 83 military judges to try 1556 special and general courts, for an average of ~19 cases/judge/year. This is just under a tenth of the Kansas per-judge caseload. The Editor would appreciate information on the number of Navy and Marine Corps reserve judges. A further recalculation will be posted if there are any. Suggestion for the Joint Service Committee: why not include these data in the Art. 146a(b), UCMJ, annual reports of the Judge Advocates General?
