Some of Wikileaks Case Moves to Civilian Court

 BALTIMORE (AP) - A dispute over public access to court records in the case of Pfc. Bradley Manning has moved to a civilian court.
 
     The New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights asked an Army court in 2012 for access to documents in the court-martial, which is being held at Fort Meade. In April, the military's highest court ruled it wasn't the right place for the dispute. 
 
     A government lawyer said Monday the issue is moot because the Army is now making pre-trial records available online and promises to continue to do so.
 
     Manning is accused of aiding the enemy by leaking classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.
 
     The center is representing itself, WikiLeaks and several others. More than 30 news organizations, including The Associated Press, supported the center's request.
