New Documents in Fort Hood Shooting Case Raise Concerns About Prosecution's Handling of Evidence
July 18, 2011

A new filing in the Fort Hood case shows that a key White House Intelligence report on the Fort Hood Shooting in November 2009 is still being withheld from the defense. The Army also admits it does not have all of the emails exchanged between the accused shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan and the first American on the CIA’s kill or capture list, Anwar al-Awlaki.

The documents, filed on July 14 as part of the Fort Hood prosecution, state:

“Trial counsels (Army lawyers) have produced all electronic communication in their possession between the Accused and Anwar al-Awlaki. On information and belief, trials counsels do not believe they possess all electronic communications between the Accused and the individuals (al-Awlaki.)”

Suspect in Fort Hood shootings to be arraigned
July 20, 2011

FORT HOOD, Texas — The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage nearly two years ago was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, his first courtroom appearance since the commander of the Texas Army post decided he would face the death penalty.

Maj. Nidal Hasan, charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder, could enter a plea or opt to wait until another hearing. According to military law, however, he cannot plead guilty because it is a death penalty case.

Col. Gregory Gross, Fort Hood's chief circuit judge, is expected to set dates for other hearings and for the trial. Documents filed in the case show that jurors will be brought in from Fort Sill, Okla., said Hasan's lead attorney John Galligan.

Lawyer for Fort Hood suspect steps down
Court date set for March 5; deferred plea granted

July 20, 2011

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP/KXAN) - The lead attorney for the man charged in the November 2009 deadly rampage at Fort Hood said he is stepping down from the case temporarily.

A trial date was set Wednesday for March 5. The defense has requested a deferred plea and the judge granted it.

John Galligan's announcement on Wednesday came shortly before Maj. Nidal Hasan's first court appearance since it was announced he'll face the death penalty. It was unclear if Hasan was going to enter a plea at his arraignment on the Texas Army post.

The Army psychiatrist is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
 ::snipping2::
Galligan, a civilian attorney, told The Associated Press he was taking a leave of absence but declined to give reasons. Galligan said he continues to believe Hasan has been treated unfairly.

I can't help but wonder if this isn't some kind of cockamamie defense tactic in the fashion of Jose Baez/Cheney Mason?

Defense Attorney in Fort Hood Shooting Case Takes Leave of Absence
July 20, 2011

The lead attorney for the accused Fort Hood shooter is taking a leave of absence from the case, withdrawing from the defense team for an undetermined length of time just as Maj. Nidal Hasan was set to appear in court Wednesday.

John Galligan, the lead civil defense attorney for Hasan, announced his decision in a brief statement, defending his work and claiming he stands ready to resume an "active role" sometime in the future.

"I will not at this time detail the reasons prompting this development," he said.

But it had been rumored that Galligan might leave. Fox News has learned that a new filing in the case shows a key White House intelligence report on the shooting is still being withheld from the defense. Galligan also had a long-standing complaint that his requests to get the proper security clearances for the case were ignored. The new filing supports Galligan's claim that he is still without the clearances he has requested to adequately defend his client.

Ft. Hood Shooter Releases Attorney
July 20, 2011

Major Nidal Hasan appeared before a military judge Wednesday, releasing his civilian attorney. He also waived his right to enter a plea.

John Galligan has been Major Hasan's attorney since the first week after the 2009 shooting rampage. Hasan told Colonel Gregory Gross, the military judge, that he has released John Galligan as his lead attorney. Instead he'll be represented by three JAG attorneys
 ::snipping2::
Hasan did not enter a plea. He was offered the chance to do so today but declined. He will have the opportunity to enter a plea at another hearing but military law says because of the charges against him, he cannot enter a guilty plea.

Hasan also waived his rights to have the charges against him read out loud. He is accused of the November 2009 shooting death of 13 people on Fort Hood. He was charged with 13 counts of pre-meditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre-meditated murder.

Colonel Gross did schedule the court martial date for March 5, 2012. The verdict of that court martial will be determined by 12 officer members of the Army. Hasan may not be tried by a judge alone in this capitol case. Military law states those members must be Hasan's rank or higher, either a Major or a rank above Major. Those members must also unanimously agree on a verdict of guilty and a sentence of the death penalty.
 ::snipping2::
Thomas Rhreinlander, Fort Hood Public Affairs Officer said Fort Hood does not know how long the trial be in March but right now the trail is estimated to take 45 days.

Suspect Is Arraigned in Fort Hood Massacre
July 20, 2011
 ::snipping2::
The Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, informed the judge shortly before the arraignment on Wednesday that he had released the lawyer and would be represented by military lawyers from the United States Army Trial Defense Service who had already been working on his case. At the arraignment, the judge, Col. Gregory Gross, asked Major Hasan if his decision to remove the civilian lawyer was a voluntary act.

“Yes, it is,” Major Hasan responded quietly.
 ::snipping2::
It was unclear why Major Hasan changed his defense team. The civilian defense lawyer, John P. Galligan, is a retired Army colonel and military judge. In an interview last week, Mr. Galligan said he did not believe that his client could receive a fair trial at the base. Major Hasan’s lawyers from the United States Army Trial Defense Service are provided at no cost to him.

Mr. Galligan issued a statement following the arraignment, describing his departure as a “leave of absence.” He wrote that he would continue to monitor developments in the case, but he declined to detail the reasons why he was released.
“Over the past year, my family and I have been vilified by many for defending Major Nidal Hasan,” the statement read in part. “That disparagement is misplaced. You will recall that an early President, John Adams, was subjected to similar scorn when he led the defense of British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre. President Adams reminded critics that he performed a vital role and served a noble function.”

If convicted, Major Hasan will join a handful of other men on the military’s death row, at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. Although the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of capital punishment in the military in 1996, military executions are rare. The last time the military carried out a death penalty sentence was on April 13, 1961, when John A. Bennett, a 26-year-old Army private convicted of the rape and attempted murder of an 11-year-old Austrian girl, was hanged at Fort Leavenworth.

Hasan jurors not from Fort Hood
Army has chosen 12 high-ranking officers from Fort Sill, Okla.

July 22, 2011

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan won't go on trial until March, but the Army already has selected 12 potential jurors.

The jury, however, isn't coming from Fort Hood, where Hasan is accused of shooting 45 people in a 2009 rampage, killing 13. In what attorneys say is a bow to concerns about Hasan's right to a fair trial and a possible appeal following a verdict, the panel of six colonels, four lieutenant colonels and two majors will come from Fort Sill, Okla.

Retired Army Col. John Galligan, who was Hasan's lead attorney until Wednesday, said he has been given a list of officers who will sit in judgment of his former client. Trial has been set for March 5.

“To me, the fact that they had to go select potential jurors from the Fort Sill community is a clear indication of what I've been saying all along,” he said. “I don't think you could get a fair jury out of the people at Fort Hood.”

Suspect yells name of Fort Hood shooter
July 29, 2011

WACO, Texas (AP) - An AWOL soldier accused of plotting to launch an attack on Fort Hood was defiant during his first court appearance on Friday, yelling out the name of the Army psychiatrist blamed in the 2009 deadly shooting rampage at the same Texas base.
 ::snipping2::
As he was being led out of the courtroom, he yelled out "Iraq 2006" and the name of the 14-year-old Iraqi girl who was raped and murdered in 2006 by a U.S. soldier. He then shouted: "Nidal Hasan Fort Hood 2009."

Hasan, an Army major and psychiatrist, is charged in the 2009 deaths of 13 people at Fort Hood in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.

Abdo's words in court were a sharp contrast to an essay he wrote last year as the first anniversary of the Fort Hood shootings approached and as he petitioned for conscientious objector status. In the essay, obtained by The Associated Press, Abdo said the attacks ran against his beliefs as a Muslim and were "an act of aggression by a man and not by Islam."
 ::snipping2::
It was not immediately known if Abdo had any connections to terror groups or Hasan. He was ordered held without bond on charges of possession of an unregistered destructive device in connection with a bomb plot. His court-appointed attorney did not plan to comment Friday.

Officers who responded to 2009 Fort Hood shootings, hailed as heroes, losing their jobs
August 8, 2011

FORT HOOD — The two Fort Hood police officers celebrated as heroes for responding first to the 2009 shooting massacre at this Army post were told recently they would lose their jobs as part of broader military budget cuts.

Kimberly Munley and Mark Todd, who is credited with taking down suspected shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan, have both left Fort Hood in advance of the termination of their jobs. Fort Hood officials said other civilian police officers on the post who were hired on a year-to-year basis will likewise not see their employment renewed.

"We all hold Fort Hood in our hearts and never thought we would be facing cutbacks," said Munley, who has taken an unpaid leave of absence.

Fort Hood officials said the civilian police officers will be replaced with military police soldiers, or MPs, in a sign that the wartime posture of the Army's busiest deployment hub is slowing down. Officials said Fort Hood increased hiring of civilian officers in 2003 as military police soldiers were increasingly deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, a trend that is reversing.

Top Al Qaeda Figure Killed

By HAKIM ALMASMARI in San'a, MARGARET COKER in Abu Dhabi and SIOBHAN GORMAN and JULIAN BARNES in Washington, D.C.

Al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, one of the most-wanted terrorists on a U.S. target list, has been killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen, marking another significant blow to the global terrorist group after the assassination of Osama bin Laden earlier this year.

An American-born Islamic preacher and U.S. citizen, Mr. Awlaki had been linked to suspects in the 2009 Fort Hood, Texas, shooting spree and the botched bombing of a Detroit-bound jet that Christmas.

On the run for months in Yemen's remote tribal regions, Mr. Awlaki was killed at approximately 9:55 a.m. local time outside a village in the northeastern province of Jawf, according to a Yemeni official familiar with the situation.

Fort Hood shooting suspect seeks jury consultant
October 27, 2011

A military judge is considering requests to provide a jury consultant and pre-trial publicity expert, paid for by the government, to the Fort Hood shooting suspect's defense team.

The two defense motions came during a pre-trial hearing Thursday.

During the hearing, Hasan's defense team asked Judge Col. Gregory Gross to grant their request for two experts, who they say will help ensure a fair and impartial jury is chosen.

Capt. Justin Oshana, one of Hasan's three Army defense lawyers, argued that death penalty cases are different from other cases, and should have heightened standards.

Since the case has garnered what he calls an 'unprecedented level' of pre-trial publicity, Oshana asked the judge for an expert who could analyze and measure exactly how much media coverage the case has received.

To provide that insight, the defense will bring in Dr. Steve Penrod, who is part of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. According to the defense, Dr. Penrod and a team of graduate students will gather media reports from multiple areas. The team will then use a coding system to not only look at the volume of coverage, but also identify specific pieces of information the stories are linked to. As an example, Oshana brought up references to terrorism in the media reports about his client.
 ::snipping2::
The defense also requested the help of Jeffrey Fredrick, Ph.D for the jury selection process. They argued that because of the victims in the case, a majority of them soldiers, and the sheer number of victims, along with other factors, Fredrick's expertise as a jury consultant is warranted.

In addition to analyzing completed questionnaires by potential jurors, the defense said Fredrick can also help with followup questions, as well as read verbal and nonverbal responses of potential panel members.

The prosecution asked the judge to reject the defense's request. They argue that this case should not be held to a higher standard. Prosecutors said there is no precedent that requires these types of experts be approved for cases like Hasan's. They argue these issues can be addressed through the voir dire process, where each side will have an opportunity to present questions to prospective panel members or jurors to help determine a fair and impartial jury.

The judge did not rule on either of the motions. There is no word on when he will make a decision.
 ::snipping2::
He is expected back in court again on the week of Nov. 28.

His trial is set to begin March 5, 2012.

Fort Hood victims' kin holding private memorials
November 5, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two grieving families walked through endless rows of headstones at Arlington National Cemetery on a cool autumn day to pay their respects to two soldiers they never met.

But they are forever linked to Maj. Libardo Eduardo Careveo and Lt. Col. Juanita Warman, bound by tragedy. Their relatives and both soldiers were among 13 people gunned down in a Fort Hood, Texas, shooting rampage two years ago that left more than two dozen others wounded.

Staying connected with the other victims' families has helped in the grieving process, although they may never truly heal, they said.

"We are meeting with some of the family members who live locally here. There's just an extension of family and (we're) just wanting to reconnect with them on this second anniversary," said Keely Cahill Vanacker, whose father Michael Grant Cahill was killed on Nov. 5, 2009. "Many of us just consider each other, from those who were first responders to (the) wounded, an extension of family now. And it may not be something where we're together at Thanksgiving or we are able to call each other every day. ... But two years later, we still have a close relationship."

No public memorials were planned at Fort Hood to mark the second anniversary of the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation.


On Saturday in a small private ceremony, some victims' relatives planned to place wreaths on the fence that now surrounds the boarded-up building where the shootings occurred. Michael Cahill's widow, Joleen, placed the first wreath there a few months after the rampage, and since then relatives of other victims, the wounded and even emergency personnel have gathered there on some holidays for private ceremonies to honor those who died.

83 seek $750M for Fort Hood tragedy
November 10, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 80 victims and family members in the worst-ever mass shooting at a U.S. military installation are seeking $750 million in compensation from the Army, alleging that willful negligence enabled psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan to carry out a terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Texas.

The administrative claims filed last week say the government had clear warnings that Hasan, who is scheduled to go on trial in March, posed a grave danger to the lives of soldiers and civilians.

Judge in Hasan trial denies motion to recuse himself
November 30, 2011

Update 12:01 p.m.: FORT HOOD — Military Judge Col. Gregory Gross today denied a defense motion to recuse himself from the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan. The pre-trial hearing ended about 11:30 a.m.

Earlier: A military judge presiding over the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan in Fort Hood today denied a defense motion to recuse himself because he was on the post at the time of the 2009 shooting that killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others.

At a pretrial hearing today, Military Judge Col. Gregory Gross denied the motion before attorneys could give oral arguments. After attorneys complained, Gross allowed arguments and afterward called a recess in the hearing.

It was not immediately clear if Gross was reconsidering the motion.

Hasan, a former Army psychiatrist, faces 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 charges of attempted premeditated murder in connection with the November 2009 shooting, in which he was also injured. His trial is scheduled to begin March 5.

At a hearing in October, Gross told lawyers for Hasan that his wife and two children were at a grocery store on the Army post when the shooting happened. Gross also said he was on the post involved in a trial when he heard about the shooting and called for a recess in the case.

After he heard that the post was locked down, he continued with the hearing, he said.

Military judge to decide on gov't funded defense experts in Fort Hood trial

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 7:23 a.m. CST

FORT HOOD, TX (WTAQ) - A military judge is expected to decide Wednesday whether the government will pay for two defense experts to help the Army psychiatrist charged in the Fort Hood shooting massacre.

Major Nidal Hasan wants a jury consultant, plus an expert to determine how potential jurors could be influenced by the publicity surrounding the case.

The 41-year-old Hasan faces the death penalty if he's convicted of killing two Wisconsin soldiers and 11 others at the Texas military base in November of 2009. .

Judge resets Fort Hood murder trial to June
By Jeremy Schwartz
February 2, 2012

A military judge overseeing the murder trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan today reset the trial for June 12, a month earlier than what defense attorneys were seeking.

Defense lawyers told the judge that they have been overwhelmed by 60,000 pages of discovery documents since December and that they needed more time for a mitigation expert to investigate Hasan’s background.

The trial had been scheduled to begin in March and last about two months at the Army post.

Earlier this morning, the judge, Col. Gregory Gross, granted a defense request for an expert to aid with jury selection but denied a request for a media expert to analyze press coverage.

Fort Hood suspect requesting another expert
April 2, 2012

Maj. Nidal Hasan will attend a pretrial hearing Wednesday.

The judge may rule on a request from defense attorneys for a forensic pathologist, who would be paid by the government.

The judge also might rule on a defense motion to force prosecutors to provide notes from meetings with President Barack Obama, the defense secretary and other officials after the November 2009 shootings. But prosecutors say no Army officers involved in the case have been influenced by higher-ranking officials.

Victim Outreach Program Called to Testify in Hasan Hearing in Fort Hood
April 13, 2012

AUSTIN, Texas — The Institute for Restorative Justice & Restorative Dialogue at The University of Texas at Austin was called to Fort Hood on April 10 to provide testimony as part of a recent hearing in the case of United States vs. Maj. Nadal Hasan. The institute’s Defense-initiated Victim Outreach (DIVO) program was being considered for use in the case, in which Hasan has been charged with 13 counts of first-degree murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood.

Hasan’s defense team was seeking funding for a victim outreach specialist to serve as a bridge between the victim survivors in this case and the defense team. Such outreach allows victim survivors’ needs to be communicated to the defense and their responses communicated back. The program gives victim survivors a stronger voice in a process that affects their lives.

The hearing represents the first time testimony has been heard related to DIVO and its application in a military court martial. The Institute’s Director Marilyn Armour and Assistant Director Stephanie Frogge testified in support of the defense’s motion to fund  an outreach specialist to provide services to victim survivors. Their testimony focused on the concept and practice of DIVO, with particular emphasis on how it has been implemented in Texas.
