Fort Hood Judge Refuses To Step Down

The judge presiding over the trial of the army psychiatrist who allegedly went on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood in 2009 is not stepping down.

The lawyers of Major Nidal Hasan asked Judge Gregory Gross to step down because they believe has an implied bias on the case because he was working on-post the day of the shooting.

Judge Gross took recess after the motion and when he returned, he dismissed it. He claimed, since he does not know what specifically happened during the shooting and because he has avoided discussing the case he holds no bias.

Hasan's trial is scheduled to start in March.
