Some of these may be just typos, but given that a court-martial is a trial, it is also a credible eggcorn:
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/page/1448242 – “The trial of Marshal Bazaine by court-martrial was opened at noon on October 6th”
http://www.topix.com/forum/personal-fin … RFBT1B6F4C – “the admiral was brewing his own beer, there was a court martrial an one cadet testified she was so drunk she couldn’t remember if she was raped or not”
