Military judge approves pre-trial hearing for Major Hasan case

FORT HOOD, Texas -- A one-day administrative hearing will be held at 10 a.m. Oct. 27 in the Lawrence J. Williams Judicial Center here.

Both parties in the case of the United States vs. Major Nidal M. Hasan will go on record in open court before Military Judge Col. Gregory Gross to litigate two motions brought by defense.  The motions concern whether the accused is entitled to receive different types of expert assistance at government expense. 

This will be the first in-court appearance of the parties since the arraignment on July 20.  The military judge may also choose to put other matters on the record at that time.

The accused is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Media who plan to cover the hearing must register (here). On the date for the event, Satellite Trucks should report to the Fort Hood Clarke Road Gate on West Highway 190 at 6 a.m. Truck registration ends at 6:45 a.m. All others should check in to the Fort Hood visitor's center, from 8-9 a.m. for final registration. All media should be prepared to show a U.S. driver's license with photo and an accredited press badge with photo.
