An important and encouraging bulletin came in last night from Scott Behenna, 1st Lt. Michael Behenna's father.
Today, the Supreme Court requested a response from the Government concerning Michael's petition. The Government had previously waived their right to respond. We knew Michael's petition did not have a chance of moving forward in the Supreme Court without the Court asking for the Government's position about Michael's petition. Today's request allows the Court to fairly analyze the petition and requires the Government to defend the military's actions against Michael.
We pray this step will increase the likelihood that Michael's case will be heard by the Supreme Court of the United States. Thanks for your support and we will advise you of any new actions by the Court.
