It was supposed to be a big celebratory lunch for a Spanish judge advocate colonel who was being transferred to the reserves, but it has turned into a years-long (and continuing) legal battle because the honoree used the occasion as an opportunity to criticize the Ministry of Defense for not appointing the honoree to a particular important prosecutorial position. Was the action arbitrary? Was the Undersecretary of Defense disqualified? Was the officer's right to free speech violated? The case is now before the Military Chamber of the Supreme Court a second time. El Confidencial Digital has the story here [use Google Translate if you do not read Spanish].
