Roanoke lawyer sues Army Secretary Brownlee, claiming unlawful policy limiting reservist lawyers
Via JSW, the Roanoke paper has this article ("Reservist lawyer files federal suit over practice rule," 6/24/04) about a legal challenge brought by a Roanoke lawyer who is a U.S. Army reservist against a government policy prohibiting private practice of reservists who have been called up. The article notes that the current secretary of the Army is coincidentally the father of the W.D. Va.'s U.S. Attorney, John Brownlee, himself a reservist.
