A military judge refused yesterday to dismiss the case against the only U.S. officer charged with crimes in the Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal in Iraq.
Attorneys for Army Lt. Col. Steven L. Jordan argued that the government exceeded a 120-day limit between charging him April 28 and arraigning him Jan. 30.
Col. Jordan, 50, a reservist from Fredericksburg, Va., directed the interrogation center at Abu Ghraib in the fall of 2003 and is accused of failing to exert his authority as prisoners were stripped naked, photographed in humiliating poses and intimidated by military dogs.
He also is accused of lying to investigators about abuses they say he witnessed.
