Fort Hood Shooting Suspect Arraigned, Changes Lawyers
US Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, accused in the Fort Hood massacre in 2009, has been arraigned for military trial. His civilian lawyer, retired Colonel John Galligan, reportedly “took a leave of absence” from the case. FoxNews implied his departure might have been related to his lack of security clearance. Galligan has been vocal about Hasan’s “mistreatment” to date:
“I have consistently argued that Major Hasan has not been treated fairly. I maintain that belief,” Galligan said Wednesday.
By that date, the baby killed in the rampage would have been about 2 years old.
