Due to the nature of this administrative board hearing, details of the case will not be described. The claims litigated in the administrative board hearing (like a military trial with fewer rules and protections) were aggressively defended against and the board members deliberated for a short time before delivering the victorious decision.
While this military case was successfully defended, it is important to understand that every case has different facts, and success in previous cases does not guarantee success in any particular future case. No military lawyer or civilian defense lawyer, including those who specialize in military law, can guarantee the outcome of any military case.
