You may remember the ProPublica litigation (still ongoing) regarding contemporaneous media access to court filings in Mays. In August, NIMJ sent a letter to DoD General Counsel about the lack of transparency in court-martial proceedings. The issue is one of transparency in courts-martial and appeals which Congress has begun to address with UCMJ art. 140a.
Here is some new guidance from the DoD General Counsel. Also the current status report on the ProPublica litigation. As you can see, all the information in the report is publicly available on PACER to anyone with an account.
