Hasan's civilian attorney, retired Army Col. John Galligan, said Hasan's commanders have already placed him in what is considered pretrial confinement. Saturday's hearing is to determine whether that is appropriate.
The Fort Hood Staff Judge Advocate Office confirmed late Friday that a pretrial review of Hasan's confinement was scheduled for Saturday at the Army base. No other details, including the exact time and location, were included.
Galligan said he will argue that the pretrial proceedings are being conducted hastily and without enough consideration of Hasan's medical condition. However, there is no decision pending on removing Hasan from the hospital, Galligan said, adding that no one has told him when Hasan will be discharged and where he might be taken when he is released.
Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist, is accused of killing 13 people and injuring several others in the November 5 shooting at the Fort Hood Army Post near Killeen. He has not pleaded to the charges.
