ABA Journal - Hasan’s pro se defense at trial over Fort Hood slayings raises ethical issues for standby counsel

Nidal Hasan can represent himself in a looming trial over the 2009 massacre of military personnel at Fort Hood, the 42-year-old Army psychiatrist has been at odds with his fired former defense lawyers who now represent him as standby counsel.
Law professor Richard Rosen of Texas Tech University told the Daily Herald that standby counsel are doing the right thing by resisting unless and until the judge orders them to cooperate more fully.
