Background on Pakistani Supreme Court's delay

The Nation has this useful report on what delayed consideration of the challenges to Pakistan's recent military-courts legislation:
The case could not be taken up last month as Chief Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk and Justice Gulzar Ahmed suffered heart attacks while a seat of the apex court judge was vacant, which was filled by elevating Justice Maqbool Baqir.
The new legislation permits civilians to be tried by military court.
