Thanks a lot. It’s a great commentary you wrote. As you probably know, I am one of the lawyers representing the eight soldiers, and I argued the case before Lamberth. The situation is even worse than you can fathom. In fact, the soldier seeking a TRO had NO language in his contract which anyone, Philadelphia lawyer or not, could interpret as calling for an extension. And the program he signed up for, a “Try One” program, was officially advertised as a trial one year enlistment. So it’s the courts just deferring to the military all over again.
