Lawyers in WikiLeaks case argue over email access

FORT MEADE — Lawyers for an Army private accused of leaking classified information are asking the government to turn over all emails related to his pretrial detention at a military brig in Quantico, Va.

Lawyers for Pfc. Bradley Manning say military prosecutors have provided only a small portion of the emails they have. The attorneys plan to discuss the issue in court Tuesday afternoon, the first in a three-day pretrial hearing this week.

Manning is accused of sending hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables and war logs to the website WikiLeaks.

A judge is also expected to consider a government request for access to Manning’s medical files. Prosecutors want to speak with a psychiatrist who interviewed Manning when he was detained in Kuwait two years ago pending an investigation into unauthorized leaks.
