U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan (L) appears before the Fort Hood Chief Circuit Judge Colonel Gregory Gross (C-rear) with a military lawyer (R) during an arraignment as seen in this courtroom sketch, from July 20, 2011. The top U.S. military appellate court ruled that judge Gross, presiding over the case of an Army major charged with a 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas is not impartial and ordered him removed, December 3, 2012. The court also set aside the order by the judge that accused gunman Major Nidal Hasan be forcibly shaved. REUTERS/Pat Lopez/Pool
