The defense team for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, has won access to hundreds of thousands of pages of classified information.

The U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals denied an appeal made by the prosecution regarding access to classified information.

Previously, the defense said it had been given access to less than 1% of the classified material in the case.

The court has also lifted the stay of proceedings issued in early February, thus allowing Bergdahl’s court-martial to proceed.
