Defense Team Requests Article 32 Hearing Continuance

Earlier today, the Hasan Defense Team submitted a request to the Article 32 Investigating Officer, requesting the Article 32 hearing  (currently scheduled to commence on June 1st) be continued until October 1st.  Compelling reasons for the requested delay include:  substantial pretrial discovery still has not been provided to the Defense; the Defense Team (Galligan, Martin, and Poppe) will not be fully assembled for several more months; and Army prosecutors and the Special Court-Martial Convening Authority have improperly denied employment of the Defense Mitigation Specialist.
