Judge delays ruling motion for continuance after missed deadlines

Posted:
FORT HOOD -

Judge Col. Tara Osborn delayed a ruling on Maj. Nidal Hasan's motion for continuance because neither the defense or prosecution submitted requested material by the 10:30 a.m. deadline.

Judge Col. Osborn is giving both the defense and prosecution until the end of the Monday business day. She also ordered confirmation that the resources for Hasan's office are in place, because court administration relayed to her that he was missing key items to conduct proper research.

The judge also ordered for Hasan to not have access to research, and will have to rely on his standby counsel to conduct research on the internet.  

The defense standby counsel were unclear on their duties, and Lt. Col. Christopher E. Martin asked for his motion to be removed from counsel to be taken up. The judge denied the motion, stating Hasan has changed his mind several times. She ordered Lt. Col. Martin to remain on standby counsel, in the case he needs to jump in to represent Hasan during trial.

The missed deadlines, and discussion of ground rules have pushed panel selection back even further. Jury selection was supposed to begin today, then the judge pushed it back until Monday. Now Col. Osborn is ordering the prosecution to send all 18 potential jurors back to their military posts.
