Moussaoui Going to Trial

From the March 29, 2005 WaPo's Crime & Justice column:



Moussaoui Case The long-delayed case of accused Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui will proceed toward trial after a federal judge yesterday lifted a stay she had imposed on pretrial proceedings.

U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema in Alexandria had halted virtually all activity in the case while higher courts decided whether Moussaoui could interview top al Qaeda witnesses. A federal appeals court concluded that he could not, and the U.S. Supreme Court last week declined to intervene.

Moussaoui is the only person charged in the United States in the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. In her order yesterday, Brinkema said she would set a trial date "in the near future." '
