Court-martial of USS Fitzgerald commander no longer valid, judge says


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The court-martial of Cmdr. Bryce Benson, who was the commanding officer of the USS Fitzgerald when it was involved in a deadly 2017 collision, has taken a new turn.

A military judge has disqualified Navy Adm. Frank Caldwell from serving as the convening authority in Benson’s case, effectively pausing the legal action against him and raising the possibility that the charges could be dismissed. https://www.stripes.com/court-martial-of-uss-fitzgerald-commander-no-longer-valid-judge-says-1.565667
