An early recess has been called in the court-martial of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan after the 'standby' team of lawyers for Hasan filed a motion to reduce its role, asserting Hasan was "working toward" the death penalty. Hasan is serving as his own attorney after twice dismissing his court-appointed egal team. The standby team is in place to ensure Hasan's case is handled properly while he acts as his own defense.
