During the hearing, which began late Monday morning and continued through Tuesday, a military judge heard from attorneys on both sides about the matter of whether unlawful command influence and prosecutorial misconduct was present in the sexual assault prosecution of Major Martin. Though I’m not at liberty to share details at this point, I’m told by people who attended the hearing that it seemed to go well for the defense.

UPDATE 12/7/2015 at 8:26 a.m. Central: A military judge continued the military trial date for Army Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin to sometime in March 2016, though no specific date has been set.

UPDATE 12/10/2015 at 11:14 a.m. Central: I’ve learned that Major Martin’s military trial date is set for March 14-18, 2016.
