Army private charged in leak case returns to court
By (Click The Law)
An Army private accused of engineering the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history will return to court for a second day, when a military judge could decide whether defense attorneys get access to certain people and information ahead of trial.
Pfc. Bradley Manning returns Friday to a military courtroom at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.
On Thursday, one of his lawyers asked the judge in the case to dismiss the charges, saying the government had bungled turning over documents in the case. Military lawyers disagreed.
Manning allegedly downloaded and sent the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks a vast store of documents and diplomatic cables. Defense lawyers say Manning was clearly a troubled young soldier whom the Army never should have given access to classified material.
