It appears the Major Hasan is releasing Mr. Galligan as his attorney. Had this from a journalist who called asking for “why?”
Politico reports however: The lead attorney for Maj. Nodal Hasan, the man charged in the 2009 shooting rampage at Ft. Hood in Texas, says he is temporarily stepping down, according to the Associated Press.
Fox News indicates: But it had been rumored that Galligan might leave. Fox News has learned that a new filing in the case shows a key White House intelligence report on the shooting is still being withheld from the defense. Galligan also had a long-standing complaint that his requests to get the proper security clearances for the case were ignored. The new filing supports Gilligan’s claim that he is still without the clearances he has requested to adequately defend his client.
