Pending matters before the court include a hearing to determine whether a federal religious freedom law allows Hasan to wear a beard during his court martial trial.
Hasan recently grew a beard, which violates Army regulations. His attorneys say he won't shave because he's expressing his Muslim faith. However, Hasan abided by Army rules and did not have a beard before the shooting when he was an active member of the military.
Should Gross order that Hasan be forcibly shaved, the defense will have an opportunity to appeal that decision to the Army Court of Criminal Appeals before Hasan will enter his pleas.
Jury selection was due to being on Aug. 20, but the beard issue has interfered with moving ahead in that regard. Hasan first showed up in court sporting the facial hair in June.
Should Gross allow Hasan to keep his beard, Hasan will enter his pleas and the trial would begin shortly thereafter.
