Military Court Rebuffs Request For Document Access In Wikileaks Case

The U.S. military's highest court says that venue isn't the right place for a dispute over public access to documents in the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning.

The New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights had sued seeking access to documents in the ongoing case. The center was seeking timely access to transcripts, motions, court orders and other documents in the case of Manning, who is charged with giving classified information to the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks.

However, three of the five judges for the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces who heard the case, say the court doesn't have the authority to consider the question of access.

In a ruling, the judges suggested that the dispute could be heard by a civilian court.
