Gentry, R. Charles
MetadataShow full item record
This article discusses the judicial remedies available to military personnel who are conscientious objectors. It addresses whether, in view of the rule of law announced in the principle case, the doctrine of exhaustion of remedies should be asserted to defeat habeas corpus jurisdiction of the federal courts. In other words, whether those courts, which have followed the federal view prior to the decision in the principal case, now decline to accept jurisdiction by way of habeas corpus because the serviceman has an adequate remedy within the military judicial system.
