Hasan Trial Pushed Back

Posted:

FORT HOOD - Military Judge Col. Gregory A. Gross announced his ruling on the defense continuance request in United States vs. Major Nidal M. Hasan on Tuesday. He partially granted the defense request for a delay to a new trial date of Aug. 20.

Defense counsel had sought to delay to commencement of trial from June 12 until Oct. 9. Prosecutors opposed any further delay in the trial date.  

On Aug. 20, the parties will begin to seat the jury, which is called a panel in the military.  Gross will also likely hold other pretrial hearings between now and Aug. 20 and those will be announced as scheduled.
