Federal Judge Vacates Military Conviction of Bowe Bergdahl, Citing Conflict of Interest of Presiding Judge

A federal judge has vacated the military conviction of Bowe Bergdahl, ruling that the presiding judge had a potential conflict of interest that he failed to disclose. This means that the case will be remanded to a different military judge, and is seen as a victory for Bergdahl's lawyers who argued that the military court system should be held to the same standards as civilian courts. The ruling is a test of the military justice system's ability to remain independent from political influence.
