Justin Hugheston-Roberts was instructed directly by the Court Martial Appeals Court to represent a service man in the Court Martial Appeal Court. He argued that there was a legal issue over the standing of Queen's Regulations for the Royal Air Force as he argued that there was a conflict between the Regulations and the Armed Forces Act. The Respondents were represented - at the invitation of the Court of Appeal by Senior Treasury Counsel.
The Court were concerned and as part of their ruling asked that the Defence Council - Ministry of Defence - looked to act to clarify the position to avoid any further misunderstanding.
