Bergdahl court martial on hold

The court-martial of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is officially on hold.

 A judge has issued a "stay of proceedings."

The judge is waiting for an appeals court to make a decision about whether classified evidence should be shared with Bergdahl's defense team.

Bergdahl is accused of desertion, after his capture outside a U.S. military base in Afghanistan in 2009.

Bergdahl’s attorneys have argued jail time would be inappropriate for Bergdahl, given his five years in captivity and the torture they say he endured.
