TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A federal judge has taken under advisement a bid by an Iraq war objector at Fort Lewis to bar his upcoming court-martial. Ken Kagan, a lawyer for Army 1st Lt. Ehren Watada, says U.S. District Judge Benjamin Settle heard arguments in Tacoma and indicated he would try to rule by late today - or by Tuesday, the day the court-martial is set to begin. Monday is Columbus Day.
