Professor Robert Muth Interviewed on KPBS

SAN DIEGO (November 15, 2019) – University of San Diego (USD) School of Law Professor Robert Muth was interviewed on KPBS about the Navy’s decision to uphold the sentence to reduce the rank of Special Warfare Officer Chief Edward “Eddie” Gallagher, a Navy SEAL convicted of posing with a casualty of war. In the high-profile case, Gallagher faced multiple charges, but the military jury acquitted him of the more serious counts of murder and attempted murder. 

In the interview, Muth discussed that Gallagher now has the option to appeal the case through military courts, but may choose to seek assistance from the president due to previous support received on Twitter. “These allegations are very serious,” said Muth. “The defense was able to politicize the court-martial in many ways, and so I think that could potentially have longer-term ramifications for how cases will be handled in the future.”
