FORT HOOD - The military judge in the case of United States vs. Maj. Nidal M. Hasan has scheduled a half-day administrative hearing at 10 a.m. on Thursday in the Lawrence J. Williams Judicial Center on Fort Hood.
Both the prosecution and defense will go on the record in open court to litigate pending motions and discuss administrative matters.
Pending motions before the court include litigating the contents of a pretrial questionnaire to be sent to potential panel members for them to provide written answers to the questions approved by the military judge before trial and pending discovery matters. Other matters may also be filed for litigation at the hearing.
At one time the jury was to be selected from Fort Sill in Oklahoma, but now they could come from any post, including Fort Hood.
Hasan faces the possibility of the death penalty if he's found guilty of killing 13 people on post back in 2009.
