Moussaoui Wins A Small Victory In Court

Zacarias Moussaoui's motion seeking to obtain critical discovery under CIPA has been granted in part. This means he’ll have access to classified threat assessments on al-Qa’eda written up to one year prior to 11 September 2001. Additionally, according to the order, he is to be granted all materials in the government’s possession related not only to himself, but 9/11 terrorists Nawaf al-Hamzi and Khalid al-Midhar. Jury selection is slated to begin next week. Oral arguments begin in on the 6th of March. For access to his docket sheet, see here.
