FY22 NDAA veto overridden, UCMJ amended

The House and Senate having (for the first time) overridden a veto by President Donald J. Trump, articles 6b, 66, 67, and 140a, UCMJ, have been amended. The Courts of Criminal Appeals will now have factual sufficiency review power to overturn or modify findings that are against the weight of the evidence. The new law also prescribes increased qualifications for judges of those courts; they will now have to have 12 years of law practice to be assigned.
