U.S. Court of Military Appeals Committee Report

Initially established in 1953, the Court Committee was reestablished in October 1987 by the United States Court of Military Appeals. Citing major developments in military justice, the Court directed the Committee “to study and make recommendations” that the Court could use “in evaluating and improving its own administration and operations." Over a period of 12 months, the Committee considered written submissions and oral statements by a variety of individuals, both civilian and military, and also interviewed the judges of the Court. This report discusses seven subjects, which provide the basis for the Committee’s conclusions and recommendations. These subjects include: whether the Court has performed its intended role; the relationship between the Court and the Department of Defense; the appointment of judges, tenure, and designation of the chief judge; the size of the Court; the organization, function, and role of the Court's staff; the Court's workload; and Article III status for the Court. The Committee identified appellate delay as one of the most urgent problems of the Court.
