Rep Susan Davis re-introduces Equal Justice for Our Military Act

Earlier this month, U.S. Representative Susan Davis (D-Calif.) re-introduced the Equal Justice for Our Military Act of 2013, H.R. 1435.  If passed, the bill would amend Title 28 of the United States Code section 1259 permit cases to be reviewed by the Supreme Court of the United States where the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces has not granted review or relief in extraordinary cases.  Currently the high court has no jurisdiction to review such cases. 

Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) is expected to re-introduce a similar bill in the U.S. Senate within the next few months.
