You have an appellate client who refused trial defense counsel and now refuses to talk with you about his appeal so you can properly represent him.

The Google will tell you Casey is a Marine judge advocate. A quick search on the NMCCA website will tell you that he must be assigned to Appellate Defense (Code 45) because his name is on a number of cases. But that is it.
