JURIST reports that:

A US military judge announced tuesday that the trial of Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr will begin on August 10 [scheduling order, PDF]. Army Col. Patrick Parrish also ordered pre-trial hearings on the admissibility of Khadr’s alleged confession to resume July 12. Khadr’s pre-trial hearings were suspended last week so that Pentagon officials could submit him to a mental health evaluation. Khadr was arrested in Afghanistan in 2002 at the age of 15 after he allegedly threw a grenade that killed on soldier and injured another.
