U.S. Judge refuses to submit to Islamic law…so he is removed from the Ft. Hood massacre Case

December 5, 2012

The Judge refused to submit to Islamic law so ..... he's off the case. He wasn't impartial enough. Got that?

"Breaking news: Judge removed in Fort Hood shooting rampage case" Dallas News (thanks to Van) FORT HOOD -- A military appeals court has thrown out a judge's order to forcibly shave the Fort Hood shooting suspect and removed the judge from the case.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled Monday that Col. Gregory Gross didn't appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan.

Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen.

Hasan appealed after Gross ordered that he must be clean-shaven or be forcibly shaved before the court-martial. Hasan says his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, but facial hair violates Army rules.

The appeals court says the command, not the judge, is responsible for enforcing grooming standards.

More details to come.
