Hasan update

Rumor has it that there are now 12 trial counsel assigned to the prosecution of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, at least one of whom has military death penalty litigation experience.

The defense remains at three with Mr. Galligan and two military defense counsel, none of whom have death penalty experience under the UCMJ.

The Army psychiatrist charged with fatally shooting 13 people at Fort Hood last month has been moved from a hospital intensive care unit to a private room, his attorney said Wednesday. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan remains under guard at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio and is rehabilitating from wounds that left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Dallas Morning News reports.

The NJNews online goes with the somewhat more lurid headline of: Foot Hood terrorist out of intensive care –

His attorney John Gilligan said “I’ve filed a motion for Mr. Hasan be moved to a facility that’s closer to Fort Hood and for him to receive rehabilitation there, but I’m yet to hear back about my request”.
