Shouldn't Wrongfully Convicted Warriors be Entitled to Federal Court Review of their Convictions?

This week we filed this brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit on behalf of Clint Lorance, advocating for him and for all warriors who have been treated unfairly by the military justice system. Clint received a full Pardon from the President of the United States in November 2019. At the time, he had filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus with the U.S. District Court in Kansas, asking the federal district court (a court created under Article III of the U.S. Constitution) to review the decisions made by the military courts (which exist under Article I of

the U.S. Constitution). After the pardon, the district judge in Kansas dismissed the case, writing that by accepting the pardon Clint admitted to committing crimes. This brief sets the record straight, and speaks to why it is so important for Article III courts, those courts that were created by the Constitution to interpret all citizens’ rights, to step in and defend the rights of all Americans, including our warriors, when necessary.
