Ft. Meade announces Manning’s next court date is March 15. In an official news release email, the Ft. Meade media desk announces that military judge Denise Lind scheduled Bradley Manning’s motion hearing for March 15, at 10 AM EST, at Ft. Meade, MD. It could last two days, as the media advisory email notes, “For planning purposes, this hearing is scheduled for March 15 and 16. The hearing is open to the public.
Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, has requested a May start date for the court martial, while at last month’s arraignment it was revealed that the prosecution has pushed for an August date. It’s expected that the military judge will announce a finalized date at the March 15 motion hearing.
