I can’t say much about the attorney, other than her general publicity.
I also agree that if her new TRO is rejected then the Cpt has the option resigning or being deployed. She certainly can’t refuse the order indefinitely. However, I am not aware that she has failed to report as of yet. Normally, the DOD has been giving most reserve/guard units nearly a year advanced notice of deployment. If she loses in court then she also will have little choice, but to deploy or resign.
I was not disputing the ramifications of missing deployment, but only defending her right to question the order, if done in good faith and/or with credible evidence. Some believe that to question an order makes you less of a patriot and I would agree with that if you question the order in bad faith or simply because you don’t want to do it. After all we are a volunteer army. However, I think it takes courage to question an order believed to be invalid, but you better have some evidence to back the claim.
I just wish Obama would provide any and all documentation to prevent this kind of controversy if it is truly unwarranted. His lack of compliance only lends credence to the argument.
Based on the original case filed in Texas she was due to report to a base in Texas on August 30th. I've no idea if she did or not either.

I cannot speak for her good faith or her evidence. But if she's chosen to refuse to report as ordered then she deserves what comes to her.
