Nidal Hasan
The presiding judge in United States vs. Maj. Nidal Hasan announced several pending rulings following a pretrial hearing at Fort Hood, March 20

Col. Tara Osborn denied defense requests to move the court martial away from Fort Hood and to order a change of potential panel members.

She then heard evidentiary arguments to determine whether Evan Kohlmann will be allowed to testify as an expert witness in the case. Osborn stated she will announce at later date to what extent Kohlmann will be allowed to testify in the Hasan court martial.

Osborn also denied a defense request to send a supplemental questionnaire to panel members and ruled that under the facts of this case, Article 45(b) of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice prohibits the court from accepting a guilty plea.

Osborn set the next hearing in the case for April 16.

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