The Naval Academy will hold a funeral Friday for Midshipman Max Allen, who was found dead in College Creek on Feb. 16 after his SUV crashed into the water. Allen's funeral will be held at noon in the Main Chapel, followed by an on-foot procession to his burial at the Naval Academy Cemetery. A passerby noticed a missing part of the pillar-and-chain fence along the creek by Nimitz Library on Feb. 16. Investigators found Allen's SUV in the water and divers recovered his body from the water.

A former Naval Academy football player who is accused of sexually assaulting a fellow midshipman is moving toward a court-martial next month, officials said Tuesday. Jason Ehrenberg, a civilian attorney for Midshipman Joshua Tate, said the military judge in the case told prosecutors and defense attorneys this week that he planned to deny motions to dismiss the case. "We're going forward," Ehrenberg said. The judge, Marine Col. Daniel Daugherty, has not yet issued his rulings, and a Naval Academy spokesman said it would be improper to comment on a pending case.

The criminal case against a Naval Academy midshipman accused of sexually assaulting a classmate is expected to move forward to a March 14 court-martial after a military judge denied two motions this week related to the case. Midshipman Joshua Tate is charged with aggravated sexual assault and making a false statement, in a high-profile case that stems from a 2012 off-campus party. The judge, Marine Col. Daniel Daugherty, denied two motions this week from Tate's lawyers, one seeking to bar some of Tate's statements from being used in court and another seeking to dismiss the case on the grounds that he has been selectively prosecuted.

Naval Academy officials on Tuesday identified the midshipman who was found dead after apparently crashing his SUV into College Creek as Max Allen, a senior from Virginia. Allen's SUV was discovered in the water Sunday, after a passerby noticed part of the post-and-chain link fence along the water near Nimitz Library was missing. Officials do not know when he crashed the SUV into the water and said it could have happened as early as late Friday night or early Saturday morning. Many midshipmen were away for the weekend due to Monday's holiday and the completion of exams last week.

A Naval Academy midshipman once accused of sexual assault testified for the first time in open court Tuesday, telling a military judge that when he got into a car with a female classmate outside a 2012 off-campus party, he didn't think she was too drunk to know what she was doing. Midshipman Eric Graham said the alleged victim might have smelled of alcohol, but was talking and moving around on the night of a party that resulted in accusations of sexual assault against Graham and two others.

Attorneys for a Naval Academy midshipman accused of sexually assaulting a classmate argued Monday that the academy's superintendent was pressured to prosecute the case — one of several claims the legal team is making in an effort to have the case dismissed. Midshipman Joshua Tate is awaiting trial on charges of aggravated sexual assault and making false statements, stemming from an alleged assault at an April 2012 off-campus party. The case has gained national attention, and at a motions hearing in military court at the Washington Navy Yard, Tate's attorneys said academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Michael H. Miller was influenced by military and political pressure when he made the decision to prosecute the midshipman.

Under Armour took on Nike and Adidas - and won. Beating out much bigger rivals to partner with the University of Notre Dame and its athletic teams catapulted the Baltimore-based sports brand onto an elite playing field, marketing experts say. The endorsement deal, announced Tuesday, signals how far fast-growing Under Armour plans to go and how it plans to get there. "It's a signal to their competitors, to the stock market, to the consumer, that they're in this for the long run," said Amna Kirmani, a professor of marketing at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business.

The superintendent of the Naval Academy told a military judge Friday that his decision to prosecute a midshipman in a high-profile sexual assault case was not influenced by politicians, public pressure or his military supervisors. Vice Adm. Michael H. Miller spent more than three hours on the stand in a military court at the Washington Navy Yard defending his decision to pursue charges against Midshipman Joshua Tate. He rebutted the contention that the national spotlight on sexual assault in the military — including a pledge from President Barack Obama to root out sexual predators in the service — affected the way he has handled the case.

A military judge has ordered CNN and CBS to turn over unaired footage of interviews with a Naval Academy midshipman who was the alleged victim of sexual assault at an off-campus party in 2012. Marine Corps Col. Daniel J. Daugherty ordered the TV networks on Wednesday to provide a portion of footage that he deemed was not duplicative of other interviews and testimony from the female midshipman. The footage is sought by attorneys for Midshipman Joshua Tate of Nashville, who is facing a March court-martial on charges of aggravated sexual assault and making a false statement.
