USS Greeneville

Robert Siegel speaks with John Hutson, the dean of Franklin Pearce Law School in Concord, New Hampshire about the legal procedures against the captain of a U.S. submarine that collided with a Japanese vessel off Hawaii earlier this year. Cmdr. Scott Waddle -- the captain of the USS Greeneville -- faces disciplinary action that will likely end his career. Nine people from the Japanese ship -- a trawler used to teach high school students to fish -- died in the accident. Hutson is a retired Navy rear admiral and Navy judge advocate general.
