Not saying this is positive, but a case where the judge is following the law. Improper command influence must have consequences, just as an unlawful search and seizure does in civilian courts. The judge may not like the decision he reaches, but if the law clearly compels him to do so, then I’m OK with his decision. I will gladly take a judge who follows the law rather than makes, repeals, disregards or ignores the law as it exists.

So if a commander wants a defendant to be let off, all he has to do is perform an instance of "improper command influence"?

A better response to "improper command influence" might be to immediately transfer the commander.
