Just a few days ago, the counsel for military commission defendant Abd al Rahim Hussayn Muhammad al Nashiri filed a motion for a continuance, requesting that the four days of hearings slated for next week be delayed. The prosecution opposed the motion. But Military Judge James Pohl has apparently granted the motion, and rescheduled the hearings for June 11-14. While neither the defense motion nor the prosecution's response is available yet, Judge Pohl's order is right here.
