Judge Rules Hasan Can Keep Lawyers


Major Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, can keep his back up defense team. A military judge has ruled that Hasan’s lawyers can not quit the trial as they have  requested.

The judge stated that the attorneys could not leave the trial just because they did not agree with Hasans defense strategy.  Major Hasan has admitted to the Fort Hood shootings and seems to be trying to convince the jury to sentence him to the death penalty.
