The top US military court has removed the judge in a case of a man accused of killing 13 people at a Texas army base.

The US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces said Col Gregory Gross had not appeared fully impartial in the case of Maj Nidal Hasan.

The court also overturned an order that the suspect have his beard forcibly shaved before his court martial.

There goes one legal career in the toilet. On to round two.

By the way, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces is currently made up of three Bush appointees and one Clinton appointee.

Obama's probably the one who made sure an incompetent judge was assigned to the case.

Obama is purging the senior ranks of the Army, because he's a afraid of a coup. :P <-- I had to add that smiley, just in case.

Quote:
At a June hearing, lead defense attorney Lt. Col. Kris Poppe said the judge showed a bias against Hasan when he asked defense attorneys to clean up a court restroom after Gross found a medical waste bag, adult diaper and what appeared to be feces on the floor after a previous hearing. Hasan, who is paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by police the day of the shootings, has to wear adult diapers -- but the mess in the restroom that day was mud from a guard's boots, Poppe said.

Removing him is probably best, otherwise it could be used as a vector for appeal.

I did not know he was paralyzed. This is good news. Hopefully his peers view him as a worthless failure for not having become a martyr. For that alone, he should not be executed.
