SECTION 130.54
Record of trial
Military (MIL) CHAPTER 36, ARTICLE 7, PART 7
§ 130.54. Record of trial. (a) Each general court-martial shall keep
a separate record of the proceedings in each case brought before it, and
the record shall be authenticated by the signature of the military
judge. If the record cannot be authenticated by the military judge by
reason of his death, disability, or absence, it shall be authenticated
by the signature of the trial counsel or by that of a member if the
trial counsel is unable to authenticate it by reason of his death,
disability, or absence. In a court-martial consisting of only a military
judge the record shall be authenticated by the court reporter under the
same conditions which would impose such a duty on a member under this
subdivision. If the proceedings have resulted in an acquittal of all
charges and specifications or, if not affecting a general or flag
officer, in a sentence not including discharge and not in excess of that
which may otherwise be adjudged by a special court-martial, the record
shall contain such matters as may be prescribed by regulations issued
pursuant to this chapter.

(b) Each special and summary court-martial shall keep a separate
record of the proceedings in each case, which record shall contain such
matter and be authenticated in such manner as may be required by
regulations issued pursuant to this chapter.

(c) A copy of the record of the proceedings of each general and
special court-martial shall be given to the accused as soon as
authenticated.
